Xavier Becerra To Be the New Bill Richardson?!

B000287.jpg
California’s 31st District Congressman Xavier Becerra is rumored to be on the list for the Barack Obama administration appointment that Governor Bill Richardson stepped down from.

LAist brings us the details:

But he may actually be interested in leaving congress to head the Commerce Department after Bill Richardson stepped down yesterday. “Even though he turned down the trade representative slot, Becerra is not only Hispanic, but he has the skill, talent and experience to do the Commerce job,” a source told the San Antonio Express-News. “Xavier’s name has gone to the top of the list of potential replacements in part because he is a member of the House leadership, he is well liked, he has very good credentials, and, of course, he was an early Obama backer.”

Ahh! Quick! Someone sleep with this man so we can keep him as our congressman! This is LA, we hate to see anyone go onto better things.

UPDATE: According to Politico, Becerra is staying put. Phew!

LAT In 90 Seconds

Obama’s newsroom visit [to the Conway, N.H. Daily Sun] was marked by another oddity — the candidate was asked to autograph a refrigerator. Producing a magic marker, he complied, adding his name to those of Democrats Hillary Clinton, Bill Richardson and Chris Dodd and Republican Tom Tancredo.

The Sun intends to collect as many signatures from presidential aspirants on the appliance as possible during the buildup to the state’s primary. After the vote, the fridge will be auctioned on EBay, with proceeds donated to charity.”
