The Dance Craze That's Been Sweeping Sacramento

Via the first Roundup of 2006:

And, of course, 2006 is an Election Year (kind of like 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002...) John Wildermuth takes a look at this year's "term-limits shuffle" currently underway in political consultant offices statewide.

The poster child for this little dance, says Wildermuth, is Sen. Joe Dunn. Dunn "has traveled much of the state's political landscape looking for a race to call his own. The Orange County lawyer first planned a campaign for attorney general, but jumped to the treasurer's race when Jerry Brown decided to run for attorney general. When Lockyer carried his $10 million campaign war chest into the treasurer's race, Dunn quickly decided to run for controller."
No real commentary here, other than to beg for an end to the madness. I like Joe Dunn. But I hate this job jockeying from everyone.
