SACRAMENTO, California -- Today, California will add a footnote to its history books when the Golden State will be headed by its first openly gay governor.
San Diego resident Toni G. Atkins, a Democrat, will be the Acting Governor because:
1. Gov. Jerry Brown is in Mexico on a trade mission and to talk about immigration issues.
2. Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is out of state attending Special Olympics.
3. Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg is in Chicago on business.
