Yes, it's true. A notable European wants to succeed Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, an Austrian. Prince Frederic von Anhalt, who came here from Germany and became a citizen when he married Zsa Zsa Gabor, says he is a gubernatorial candidate, according to the LA Times. "When I came to California 26 years ago, we had the 'good life.' We were prosperous; people had jobs, affordable homes and money to spend," he said in a statement. "The economy was great. I loved the state so much that I decided to make my home here, marry and become a citizen." The announcement is coming in the form of a billboard somewhere on Sunset Blvd. today.
