Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

SchwarzeneggerVotes.JPGGov. Arnold Schwarzenegger cast his ballot this morning, but he's not ready to tell the public who he chose as his successor.

Schwarzenegger, who voted at a West Los Angeles elementary school this morning, "told reporters he won't reveal until nighttime whether he chose Democrat Jerry Brown or fellow Republican Meg Whitman," according to the Associated Press.

The Republican governor has refrained from endorsing either candidate vying for his job, saying he thinks it's important to focus on getting "both of the parties to come together to create... reforms."

"I'm going to stay out, like I said," he repeated at an event yesterday. "To me what is important is I ran for office to move the state of California forward, to bring everyone together, to bring both of the parties together, Democrats and Republicans."

Schwarzenegger hasn't been shy about his opposition to Proposition 23, the measure to suspend the greenhouse gas emissions law he signed into law in 2006. He's also campaigned against Proposition 27, a push to eliminate the Citizens Redistricting Commission.
