Republican Tom Campbell has canceled meetings and appearances this week including a meeting where he was to address the Republican Party of Los Angeles County Central Committee on Thursday evening – as reported to this blogger.
Tom Campbell will be announcing formally what has been rumored for a few weeks now – he is exiting the Governor’s Race.
Update – according to the San Jose Mercury News, Thursday Morning, Campbell will announce he is exiting the Governor Race and will switch to running for U.S. Senate. KGO radio in San Francisco quoted Duf Sundheim as their source.
The questions as to what happened behind the scenes – if there was a deal made, etc will certainly come out in the ensuing days.
In the short term – Steve Poizner will be left without a debate partner.
