|What's next for Bill Lockyer?|
As Attorney General Bill Lockyer climbed onto the stage on election night, he was victorious. He had just dispatched his hapless Republican opponent by 17 percent and was flanked by his wife and fellow Democratic winners U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the next Attorney General Jerry Brown, and soon-to-be Secretary of State Debra Bowen.
But something was amiss.
He had been elected state treasurer, his second statewide constitutional office. But Lockyer, who continuously has held elected office since 1968, was supposed to have run for governor in 2006.
