Carlsbad man announces bid for governor

A self-described “Tea Party Patriot” from Carlsbad on Friday announced he will run in the Republican primary to succeed Arnold Schwarzenegger as governor of California.

Larry Naritelli, a 53-year-old, married, corporate accounting manager, said he became “disenfranchised” from the GOP when it moved away from the conservative beliefs of President Ronald Reagan.

He said he thinks California’s budget problems can be turned around by a program of Reagan-like supply-side economics, which means cutting taxes and business regulations.

Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner, former eBay entrepreneur Meg Whitman and ex-legislator Tom Campbell have already announced they are Republican candidates.

No major Democrat has announced a run for governor. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom have said they won’t run, while the presumed front-runner, Attorney General Jerry Brown, has not made an announcement either way.
