Several news outlets are now reporting that former Silicon Valley Congressman Tom Campbell is likely to drop out of the Republican primary campaign for governor in order to take a shot at the U.S. Senate race instead.

While the Republican candidates play musical chairs, the California Democratic Party is busy preparing for what will be a hard-fought election contest.
Senator Boxer is more than ready for a long and expensive Senate campaign and stands ready to take on whomever the Republicans nominate.
Democrats in this state have every intention of re-taking the governor’s mansion in 2010 and will stand behind our nominee, no matter which billionaire candidate we face.
