Will No on 93 Republicans Run for the Same Office in the Measure Passes?

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?

    Still waiting for an answer Chuck DeVore. Will you run for a 4th term if Prop 93 passes? Or am I violating some sort of political ethos by asking.

    This is the biggest open secret here in Sacramento. I had posted such 2 weeks ago on the Orange Juice. The open line here is that termed out Republicans want 93 to pass but cannot come out and say so since it will violate many of their philosophical tenets. The upshot of prop 93 failing is that we will not have the budget meltdown that we experienced this past July. Many of the Republicans that held up the budget are termed out. The plus is that several of these districts are in play and have a good chance of being represented by Democrats-much to the chagrin of the termed out Republicans-Hence the well of silence from these legislators.
