by Mayor Gavin Newsom

It is with great regret I announce today that
I am withdrawing from the race for governor of California. With a young family
and responsibilities at city hall, I have found it impossible to commit the
time required to complete this effort the way it needs to — and should be —

This is not an easy decision. But it is one
made with the best intentions for my wife, my daughter, the residents of the
city and county of San Francisco, and California Democrats.

When I embarked on this campaign in April, my
goal was to engage thousands and thousands of Californians dedicated to
reforming our broken system and bringing change to Sacramento.

I would like to thank those supporters,
volunteers, and donors who have worked so hard on my behalf. I have been
humbled by their support and am indebted to their efforts. They represent the
spirit of change and determination essential to putting California back on the
right track.

I will continue to fight for change and the
causes and issues for which I care deeply — universal health care, a cleaner
environment, and a green economy for our families, better education for our
children, and, of course, equal rights under the law for all citizens.
