Gavin Newsom wasn't always such a liberal crusader
from Sacramento Bee
When he took his seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, Gavin Newsom wasn't exactly the left-leaning stalwart who would emerge two decades later as the front-runner for California governor. Newsom's appointment in 1997 was viewed as providing a dose of moderation to the liberal board. A 29-year-old wine and hospitality entrepreneur backed by Getty oil fortunes and the city's political elite, he described himself as a "dogmatic fiscal conservative and a social liberal."
