Mayor Villaraigosa's Re-Election a Mere Formality
Photo of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who is running for re-election in March 3 city primary election, arriving on the red carpet at the 81st Academy Awards ceremony at the Kodak Theatre Sunday, February 22, 2009. So confident he will win again, he was a no-show at a mayoral forum with the other mayoral candidates on Sunday, opting for the Oscars. There is also much speculation that Villaraigosa is also planning on running for governor of California in 2010, although he declines to confirm. His only potential foe for the office would have been developer Rick Caruso, who decided against running. The other candidates are extreme longshots.
