Republican Sen. Jeff Denham, whose statewide profile grew during the failed recall attempt of him by Democrats earlier this year, said Thursday he is running for lieutenant governor in 2010.
The Atwater Republican has already lined up the backing of both legislative Republican leaders, Mike Villines and Dave Cogdill, as well as, which his campaign reports, "more than two-thirds of the membership of both the Assembly Republican Caucus and the Senate Republican Caucus."
The lieutenant governor post will be an open race in 2010, with incumbent Lt. Gov. John Garamendi already announcing he is running for governor.
