Mike Murphy joins Whitman campaign

(CNN) - Veteran Republican strategist Mike Murphy is joining ex-eBay CEO Meg Whitman's campaign for California governor.

Murphy, who most recently advised former Republican presidential contenders John McCain and Mitt Romney, will serve as a senior advisor to Whitman's campaign, according to an announcement Tuesday.

Murphy is no stranger to California politics, having served as a campaign adviser to current-California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    Meg Whitman – good at exporting jobs and ruining companies. Sounds really great for California.

  2. We want CA back

    California has the worst representitives (note: not leaders). Maybe they will finally find a real leader in Meg Whitman that can restore California to its glory days (before the liberal, taxing liberal policies).

    With Murphy's recent track record, Whitman's chances do not look too good.

    We need more accomplished leaders and business leaders in the governors positions, congress and the white house. I'm fed up with career politician lawyers like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi spending too much money and destroying our country.

    Don't you just love these people who call themselves "strategists?"

    Anyone with an opinion can be a strategist or an expert or an advisor.

    Why don't the GOP have any middle class or poor people running for office? These rich ex CEO can not related to everyday American people because they only represent 5 percent of the American people. The don't have a clue about the hardship us Americans on main street are going though like living from paycheck to paycheck or unemploment check with out any Health Care coverages. All these Ex-CEO have health care coverages they got with their retirement plan so who are they going to be of any us to us middle class and poor Americans?
