The latest on California politics and government

Officially, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom isn't yet a gubernatorial candidate. But the rollout of his exploratory bid makes it clear that he is in full campaign mode.

The 41-year-old mayor is already boasting of 25,000 new best friends on Facebook and 50,000 e-mail subscribers. He has attracted a few thousand more to a series of Northern California events over the past three months.

Now he's making eight campaign town hall stops across California over the next six weeks.

"People across this state are sharing their thoughts about the future of California and it is very clear that they are looking for a new way forward," Newsom said in a statement.

It's pretty clear that the mayor is looking for a way forward too.
