California's Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamente tops Arnold in a Field poll, 25 percent to 22 percent, while the other candidates struggle over Gary Coleman-sized portions.
Other points of interest: 1. Two Hispanic groups, the Mexican American Bar Association and La Raza Lawyers of California are roping George W. Bush into the mess by urging the president to stop the recall on civil rights grounds. That may be far-fetched–the recall seems completely kosher by California's consitution–but it's sharp politics.
2. Gov. Gray Davis is now saying he'd sign a domestic partners law that's passed the state Assembly.
This should all only get more interesting as the recall election looms…
