“I’m running for governor to make sure that every person in this great state — whatever the color of their skin, whatever language they speak, wherever they come from — will have the same opportunities to be successful that we all had,” the former eBay executive, Phil Westly said. “Will you join me? Will you join me?”
One thing I hate in politics is when same-party opponents beat one another up in campaigns. Both Phil and Steve have the same goal: to defeat Schwarzenegger. If they beat each other up in the primary, the Ã¢â‚¬Å“winnerÃ¢â‚¬Â will emerge with a bruised public image.
