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 lieutenant governor post will be an open race in 2010, with incumbent Lt. Gov. John Garamendi already announcing he is running for governor.
