Updated: Meg Whitman to run for Governor of California
Updated 20:37 It’s official, she’s running.
Meg Whitman, former CEO of eBay, is expected to announce today that she will run for Governor of California. Deborah Perry Piscione, CEO of BettyConfidential.com, talked with Meg this weekend about her intentions: “She realizes her greatest strength is her knowledge of the economy and her strong business background.”
Meg recently resigned from the boards of eBay, Dreamworks and Proctor & Gamble, a move which was widely assumed to indicate she would be running for the governorship in 2010. She became increasingly involved in Republican politics during the last presidential race, initially as a supporter of Mitt Romney, and then as national co-chair of John McCain’s campaign: McCain had mentioned her as a possible Secretary of the Treasury.
What do you think, eBayers? Meg 2010? Or anyone but Meg? Over to you…
