Santa Cruz Republican McPherson to run for full term as Calif. Sec'y of State
Sacramento, CA – California Secretary of State Bruce McPherson has announced he'll run for a full term in office. The Santa Cruz Republican - yes, that's right, Santa Cruz Republican - was appointed by Governor Schwarzenegger earlier this year after the scandal-plagued Kevin Shelley resigned. Before that, McPherson served a term and a half in the State Assembly followed by two terms in the State Senate, representing the Monterey Bay Area.
McPherson joins KAZU's Ben Adler on Morning Edition to talk about why he's running and what he hopes to do if he wins.
