Several months ago, former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) tantalized political observers with statements that he might be considering running for the Senate. In an interview with Politico, he announced that he will do no such thing. In typical Schwarzenegger style, he said, "why would I run for Senate? To be one of one hundred here? That’s not my style.” It was thought Schwarzenegger could be a viable candidate should Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) decide to retire, and if the former Republican Governor would run as an Independent. He left the Governorship with poor approval ratings and is not favorably viewed within the GOP’s conservative wing.
