Pro-life conservative to enter 2010 GOP gov’s race? Foy “strongly” closer to jumping in

Republican Ventura County supervisor Peter Foy — a pro-life, “strong social and fiscal conservative” — says he’s “real seriously” looking at jumping into the 2010 governor’s race.

The Simi Valley insurance executive and head of the Peter Foy Foundation told us he’ll make his decision soon — possibly in the next 30 days.

The entry of conservative Foy into the GOP gubernatorial party would be bad news for the three Republicans already in: State Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner, former eBay CEO Meg Whitman, and former Rep. Tom Campbell, who are all social moderates and pro-choice.

And it would be great news for the Democrats, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and the likely candidate State Attorney General Jerry Brown — who would like nothing better than watching the Republicans go through a crowded, contentious primary.
