Log Cabin endorses Arnold Schwarzenegger
September 24 2003 11:00 PM ET
The Log Cabin Republicans of California on Monday officially endorsed actor Arnold Schwarzenegger to replace Gov. Gray Davis in the state's upcoming recall election. The statewide chapter of the national gay Republican organization called the movie star a "uniter" who can "take back our state." Voters are scheduled to decide Davis's fate on October 7. "We believe that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be a governor for all the people of California," the LCRC said in a press release. "He appeals across party lines and the ideological spectrum. His views on social issues put him squarely in the mainstream of California voters, and his tough fiscal policies are precisely what our state desperately needs."
Schwarzenegger has maintained a consistent lead in the polls among GOP candidates since declaring his candidacy last month on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. Critics, however, accuse him of being too vague on details about how he would govern the state. In a recent radio interview he said he was for domestic partnership but against gay marriage. Meanwhile, Equality California, the state's largest GLBT political group, came out against the recall last Thursday and endorsed Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante, a Democrat, should Davis be removed from office.
