Kehoe takes out $50,000 loan

Financial move could indicate future mayoral plans

I was down at the San Diego County Recorder's office the other day, running politicians' names through the recorded document database, when I came across something interesting.

Democratic Senator Christine Kehoe and her partner, Julie Warren, took out a $50,000 loan against their home in North Park in late April.

Hmmm, we said. Then we ran it by a few political consultants. Hmmm, they said, too.  The general consensus was that it must be seed money for a 2012 mayoral run.  So far, she hasn't announced her intent yet, but she's termed out in the legislature and many have predicted she'll be a candidate. Municipal candidates can't raise funds until June 2, but they are allowed to spend personal money.

"Either she has some debt she wants to pay off or she’s running for mayor," Political consultant Chris Crotty, who usually represents Democrats, tells us.

Today, Kehoe also unveiled the new version of her website, ChristineKehoe.org, which Lucas O'Connor of Two Cathedrals remarked indicates a campaign's brewing. Crotty agrees.

"This is a time in a legislators life when they start slowing down in terms of constituent outreach," Crotty says. "Creating a brand new website when you already have a state Senate-created website, well there’s really only one conclusion I can draw from that: She’s running for office. And the only office that I see her running for is mayor."

It should be noted that Kehoe's website is official paid for by a committee named "Friends of Christine Kehoe for Assembly 2012." Kehoe only served two terms in the Assembly, so, theoretically, she could serve one more. However, she can also transfer some of the money raised for that account to a city committee, should she choose to run for mayor.
