We Have a New Congressman, Continued



It looks like our coronation of state Senator Mark DeSaulnier as the obvious replacement for outgoing Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher was a bit premature. The Chron reported Sunday that Lieutenant Governor John Garamendi may be interested in running for the seat. Garamendi has run for governor twice before, but is said to be worried about a third try against the likes of Jerry Brown, Gavin Newsom, and LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. But if Garamendi jumps into the campaign to replace Tauscher, DeSaulnier's lock on the race will suddenly look very tenuous.
