Eric Garcetti Mulls Senate — Or California Governor’s Race

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is considering his next step in politics, and his options, Politico reporterd, are wide open.

By the end of the month, Garcetti is expected to decide whether he’ll join the already crowded Democratic race for governor of California, a position that will open next year. He may, alternatively, chose to run for the Senate, if senator Dianne Feinstein, who is up for reelection in 2018, decides to retire.

“I never say no,” Garcetti, who has Jewish roots, told Politico.

And this includes a potential 2020 presidential race. Garcetti made his intentions clear with a trip to New Hampshire earlier this week, a must stop for any politician considering throwing his hat in the race.
