LOS ANGELES – Republican Bill Simon dropped out of the gubernatorial recall race Saturday amid calls from party leaders to consolidate support behind fewer candidates, a campaign official said.
Simon campaign spokesman K.B. Forbes confirmed that the Republican, who lost to Gov. Gray Davis in the 2002 race for governor, was dropping his bid to replace Davis if voters decide to oust the governor.
Interesting. One wonders how many republicans will still be around when the polls open.
Precisely one, I'm pretty certain. Even ceritifed wingnut Dana Rorbacher is holding his nose and supporting the relatively liberal Ah-nuld.

We shall harness for God the energies of Love.
Then, for the second time in the history of the world,
we will have discovered fire."
