Statement from California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton in response to reports of potential changes in Governor's race

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.
If confirmed, this much is true: it’s bad news for Senate candidate Carly Fiorina and it also goes to show that you need at least a billion dollars to buy a seat at the table in the Republican gubernatorial primary.
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.
