Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Obit_Weider.jpgBen Weider, one of the key supporters of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's bodybuilding career, died on Friday. He was 85.

Weider and his brother Joe brought Schwarzenegger to America in 1969.

"Without them having done that, I mean I wouldn't have known how to come over here. I sure didn't have the money. So that was a very important kind of stepping stone for me," Schwarzenegger told The Associated Press.
