CA-Controller: Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin Running

The Republican Party had been without a candidate for some statewide offices. While the party is unlikely to win any statewide offices, they have to field credible candidates for the offices to be considered a serious party. Today Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin announced she was running for controller. The move, two days before the filing deadline, was a surprise.

Doing a favor for the CAGOP and Jim Brulte can open up all sorts of doors, especially in the private sector. It might even get Charlie Munger to take your calls.

I'll have more to say after filing closes on Friday.
