        person who was elected to statewide office in CA as the child of another statewide officeholder but from the other party. March Fong Eu is a Democrat but Matt Fong was a Republican.

         Fong didn't run for re-election for Treasurer but instead ran against Senator Boxer. He beat Darrell Issa for the nomination to lose to Boxer; that might be the last time that the more moderate candidate won a CA GOP primary.

        Whitman is more moderate than Poizner. Of course, she also spent about $666 million more than he did. Fiorina isn't as far right as DeVore, but he never got any traction. Campbell is more moderate than she is, and he had a small lead until she carpetbombed him with money and demon sheep ads.

          was originally a very liberal Republican, particularly when he ran for a state house seat a while back, and was rather moderate and reformist when he ran for Insurance Commissioner. He just shifted radically to the right to try and beat Whitman.
