Gavin Newsom's House Sells

as the paper held off on calling the Senate race for Barbara Boxer.

Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom can no longer play coy about whether he is or is not a resident of San Francisco. According to news reports, the former San Francisco mayor's house has officially sold, which means he is officially no longer a denizen of our fair city.

So does this mean the Marin-bound Newsom will be booted from the local Democratic Party? As you might recall Aaron Peskin, chair of the Democratic Party and Newsom's political nemesis, had questioned whether the lieutenant governor was still living here, because if not, Newsom could no longer be a member of the local Democratic County Central Committee.
