Schwarzenegger: No Senate in Future

Updated

That, and other news, in today’s Roundup and Recap.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says that he is not running for Senate, as speculation has been that he could seek another office when his term expires as governor.

“The point was that I am not running for anything, so no one could threaten me, because I’m not running for Senate, I’m not running for Congress, I’m not running for another term as governor,” Schwarzenegger said this morning in Sacramento.

Although he says that he is not seeking another office, there’s still speculation that he could join the Obama administration once his term expires in January, 2011.

His statement is surely a sigh of relief for Barbara Boxer, who has been raising money for quite some time (April, 2007 for a Hollywood fundraiser) in anticipation of a significant challenge.

Schmidt for Gay Marriage: One of Schwarzenegger’s former advisers, Steve Schmidt, who ran John McCain’s presidential campaign, says that he supports same-sex marriage and voted against Prop 8. McCain’s daughter, Meghan, said last week that she supports same-sex marriage as well.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, meanwhile, urged the state to pass a bill legalizing same-sex marriage.

Another Kennedy Project: A miniseries is in the works about the Kennedy clan, the twist being that this project will have a different point of view. The man behind the project is Joel Surnow, co-creator of “24” and active in conservative politics.
