The State

State Sen. John Seymour (R-Anaheim) announced that he has begun a campaign for lieutenant governor and hopes to raise $250,000 by July 1 to establish himself as a valid statewide candidate. Seymour said he filed papers with the secretary of state’s office to establish an exploratory committee for his campaign, which he conceded probably will fizzle if he cannot meet his fund-raising goal by mid-year. Seymour is a moderate Republican in the mold of U.S. Sen. Pete Wilson, who is running for governor. A former mayor of Anaheim, Seymour said he sees the chance for a “senior partner, junior partner” relationship with Wilson should both be elected in 1990. Seymour is the first candidate to enter the race for the GOP nomination for lieutenant governor.
