Gubernatorial Challenger Phil Angelides Discusses His Campaign

Tom Fudge : State Treasurer Phil Angelides is the Democrat, running for governor against incumbent Arnold Schwarzenegger. He faces a daunting challenge, given Schwarzenegger’s rebound in public opinion. Last year, Schwarzenegger’s approval rating was at rock bottom, following a disastrous special election in which every initiative he backed was voted down. Now, he leads Angelides in the latest field poll by 16 points. But the Democrat has not given up.

We invited Arnold Schwarzenegger to join us to talk about his campaign. But his campaign did not respond to our request for an interview.
