San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom has set his eyes on the prize and he is touring the Golden State to get it.
The gubernatorial hopeful his hitting San Diego, on Wednesday, March 18. His town hall meeting will be held at Monroe Clark Middle School located at 4388 Thorn Street. The 2-hour event will begin at 7 p.m.
And As Newsom makes his way down south to America’s Finest City, he’s also stopping off Tuesday in a potential gubernatorial contender’s turf. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is expected to run for the big office in 2010.
Less than two weeks ago, Newsom strode his way into another potential challenger’s territory: Attorney General Jerry Brown of Oakland is expected to run for Schwarzenegger’s seat too, a seat he once held in 1974 for two terms.

The three Democrats represent the strongholds of progressive voters in California, but come from very different cities.
The San Francisco Chronicle called Newsom a representative of the “latte-sipping, white-collar educated liberals” and younger voters. Across the East Bay Bridge in Oakland are Brown’s people -- ethnic, blue-collar voters, while Villaraigosa has a strong Latino base to back him up down in Los Angeles.
