With all the attention on Prop 93 extending the terms of Assembly Speaker Nunez and Senate President Perata, what about other termed out legislators. Specifically, those Republicans who are publicly against Prop 93. Will Todd Spitzer throw his hat in the ring again for example?
A few days ago, State Rep. Chuck DeVore reminded me he was against Prop 93. But several commentors asked Chuck to take the pledge and say no to a 4th term in 2010. Chuck, who gets props for engaging the public who comment on the blogs, has been surprisingly silent on answering the question. Its a classic case of having your cake and eating it to.
So, if Prop 93 passes, how many of these legislators run again? And would it be hypocritical of them to do so? What do you think?
