You have no guarantee of winning the job, so your money is in jepardy.

Whitman wins GOP nomination for Calif. governor
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Meg Whitman, the billionaire former chief executive of eBay, easily won the race for the Republican gubernatorial nomination, setting up a general election contest against former Gov. Jerry Brown.

Whitman took a large lead in the polls in the final weeks of the campaign after a negative ad war over which Republican was the most conservative.

The contest was the most expensive primary in California history, with Whitman spending more than $81 million and state Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner spending $25 million.

Whitman, who has never before run for elective office, is the first woman to win the Republican nomination for governor in California.

Brown, governor from 1975-83, was unopposed in the Democratic primary.

Jerry Brown just got to sit back and watch the fireworks.  Plus, he can steal from the loser and recycle some of the messages that seemed to work.

    Typical GOP bull_hit ! Fiscally conservative but spends $81 million of her own money merely to get through a run off. What’s next ? Once in office it’ll be back to the overspending as before. It’s the way things are now done in government . They wouldn’t know fiscal constraint if it were tattooed to their f_ckin’ foreheads !

    GOP and Democrats are cut from the same cloth and they show the same zeal when it comes to spending taxpayers monies . They do it zealously and their greed knows no boundaries !
