WashPo gives Gavin Newsom the rock star treatment

Friday, February 22, 2013

He may be bored with Sacramento and out of a job at Current TV, but the lieutenant governor, who is in perpetual campaign mode, is never far from a good media gush. On tour promoting his new book, “Citizenville,” Newsom gets a good one courtesy of the Washington Post’s The Reliable Source blog, which describes him as “America’s preeminent lieutenant governor.” And that’s just the headline. The lede:

Pop quiz: Name the lieutenant governor of any state.

Stumped? Which is why the national profile of Gavin Newsom is so remarkable. At just 45 years old, California’s second-in-command has been in headlines for the past decade — and has no intention to fading into the background.
