Lt Governor: Heavyweight Candidates for a Light-Weight Office

Hosted by

California's Republican Lieutenant Governor and his Democratic challenger are more interesting than the job they're competing for. San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom says he'd outperform former State Senator Abel Maldonado, who was appointed Lieutenant Governor in April. Will the winner use the job as a stepping stone to higher office? Also, Brown and Whitman discuss negative ads. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, WikiLeaks has caused another international sensation by releasing classified documents about the Iraq war. What do we know now that we didn't know before? Are WikiLeaks and its whistle-blowers a curse or a blessing?
