Apparently Rep. Loretta Sanchez is still considering running for Governor in 2010, because she's been jawboning some individuals recently that she really means to do it. That's a campaign I would look forward to blogging.
Come to think of it, that's a possible explanation of why she's causing trouble for the 241 toll road extension -- curry favor with the enviros in preparation for a statewide. If she can claim any credit for killing the completion, it's a major feather in her Loretta-for-Governor cap as far as that particular Democratic constituency is concerned. So what if it killing it also kills the accompanying jobs -- union jobs -- that so many of her constituents would like to have. I wonder how People For Loretta 2020 donor Bay Area Union Labor Party feels about that?
But I digress. Kind of.
Two of the committee's seven donors are firefighter unions -- including $1,000 this past June from our own Orange County Professional Firefighters Association PAC. The other one is the San Francisco firefighters union PAC.
Why Loretta's popularity with the firefighters?
Maybe they liked her Christmas card from two years ago:
Gotta be the leather pants.
