Onward and Upward, Governator

Daniel Weintraub is just about the most trusted and respected Sacramento reporter in California -- for good reason. Here's Exhibit 1.

Weintraub is spot on in his analysis that the governor should resist all calls to cancel the November special election. It would be a stunning admission of defeat on measures that the governor hasn't even campaigned on -- and would be interpreted by his political enemies both as a concession of failure and of weakness. It would demoralize his allies and envigorate his enemies.

None of that would be in character for the Governator.

Our State simply can not afford to spend additional money on an extra election.

It shouldn't be about "winning" or "accepting defeat" it should be about what is good for the State.

And this additional spending will only put us futher in the hole.
