Gubernatorial candidate Westly looks for votes in Monterey

By Ben Adler

Monterey, CA – You might know him best as the Democrat who appeared in March, 2004, TV ads with California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Now, State Controller Steve Westly wants Schwarzenegger's job. But first, he faces a tough primary battle against State Treasurer Phil Angelides. Polls show neither Democrat is very well-known, and Schwarzenegger has rebounded from his defeat in last November's special election. Westly has just started running TV ads locally, and is campaigning in Monterey and Salinas this week. KAZU's Ben Adler caught up with him Tuesday afternoon.
