California Will Have Four Governors in One Week

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 08:20:00 +0000

iStock/Thinkstock(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) -- You may have heard of the recent proposal to split the state of California into six separate states, but perhaps more interestingly, the top political seat in the Golden State will be held by four different people -- albeit only temporarily -- at different times this week.

California will be under the leadership of four different governors at different times, as a number of state leaders will take turns traveling out of state.

Gov. Jerry Brown left the state on a trade mission to Mexico on Sunday, leaving Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom in command.

Newsom, however, is set to leave the state on Tuesday, according to the Sacramento Bee, pushing California Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg to the top of the political heap.

But Steinberg's control will only last one day until he, too, leaves California.

On Wednesday, Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins will take command until Brown returns from his trip late in the day, says the Sacramento Bee.
