Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

HA_lockyer.JPGFresh off his re-election to a second and final term as the state's chief banker, state Treasurer Bill Lockyer has opened a campaign account to run for state controller in 2014.

It isn't unusual for elected officials to open new campaign accounts to stash their campaign cash -- and add to the reserves -- after Election Day ends. Lockyer has an especially ample war chest -- more than $5 million going into the final weeks of his landslide re-election campaign.

But is the long-time Democratic state lawmaker, attorney general and treasurer -- who would be 73 at election time in 2014 -- looking to add yet another constitutional office to his resume?

"If Lockyer decides to continue in public service after his term as treasurer expires, state controller is the office he is interested in seeking," spokesman Tom Dresslar said.
