Former Rep. Doug Ose (R) “is considering a run for California governor. … He has begun showing up at more political events in recent weeks.”

“Ose, a Trump delegate at the 2016 national convention who said at the time he was finished with electoral politics,” said “he has grown tired of watching on the sidelines as politicians fail to tackle homelessness, under-performing schools, high taxes and housing markets across the state that have become out of reach for many Californians.”

Ose: “I know we can do better. … We know what the Democrats are going do. They are going to be captives of a Legislature dominated by Democrats. So I am taking a real look at the governor’s race.” (Sacramento Bee)

MONEY MATTERS. State Assemblyman Travis Allen (R) before he entered office gave about $25,000 “to the Democrats he now denounces—including [term-limited Gov. Jerry] Brown, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, the state Democratic Party and a congressman who has filed articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. … Allen said his donations were the result of buying tickets to political events.” (Mercury News)

Former state Schools Superintendent Delaine Eastin (D) “made an average of $170,785 annually over the last six years and paid an average of $37,539 in state and federal taxes, according to … six years of her tax returns [released] on Tuesday.”

“Eastin made most of her income, about $88,525 annually, from the pension she receives from the California Public Employees’ Retirement System. The pension was earned from her years as state superintendent of public instruction and a state assemblywoman. She also made an average of $14,766 annually as an ‘educational consultant,’ working for a long list of school districts, universities, nonprofits, and private schools.” (Mercury News)
