Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Republican Pete Peterson said Wednesday that he plans to run for California secretary of state on what he called the same "revolutionary platform" used in 1970 by then candidate Jerry Brown.

"But, you won't see me up here 40 years from now -- I want to do this job and no other," Peterson said at a sparsely attended news conference at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento that geared up his 2014 campaign for the statewide office.

Peterson, executive director of the Davenport Institute for Public Engagement at Pepperdine University in Malibu, said he hopes to pick up a few moderate Democratic friends as he begins to seek endorsements.

For more, including what he called a "business-related ... fiasco" under Secretary of State Debra Bowen's watch, view the video below.
