Lt. Gov. Maldonado?

This appeared in Sunday’s political column by Matier & Ross in the SF Chron. FYI.

“The name game: Lt. Gov. John Garamendi just commissioned a poll that (surprise, surprise) showed him to be the front-runner in the race to replace outgoing East Bay Rep. Ellen Tauscher.

What makes the poll noteworthy, however, is that if it is an accurate predictor of the special election to replace Tauscher, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger could find himself with the chance to replace Garamendi as the state’s No. 2 official.

Someone who would then have an inside lane in the race to replace Arnold when he is terminated out next year.

Among the names already being floated: Republican state Sen. Abel Maldonado, former state Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez – a Democrat – and, our personal favorite, Arnold’s wife, Maria Shriver.”
