Irvine Politician to Announce Campaign for US Senator
Republican Assemblyman Chuck DeVore will announce today that he's running for U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer's seat in 2010. The Irvine state representative who just won his third term for his district "is among the most conservative members of the Assembly GOP caucus," the SacBee reported in a Capital Alert e-mail this morning.
He also plans to "shamelessly copy" President Elect President Barack Obama's campaign strategies of using the internet. "If it works for him, it makes sense to see if it works for me," he told the LA Times.
Boxer has already raised more than $3.6 million for her campaign and it was rumored that her biggest contender would be Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger who said last year he would not be running for the position.
