Rumors be damned about Gavin Newsom, here it is, via the LA Times: "He has called elected officials and potential donors to inform them he is in the race. Sources familiar with Newsom's plans say he will unveil a list of endorsements that includes many of the state's top Democratic leaders. They requested anonymity to allow Newsom make the announcement." Too late on the latter, but this sure will make the campaign against L.A. City Councilmember Janice Hahn a fiery one. Hahn's team has already been on the attack, pointing out that the San Francisco Mayor and former gubernatorial candidate didn't even know what the elected job was about.
