8th October 2003 “I’ll be back” as potential Governor

Contents

In 2003 Arnold Schwarzenegger, on the way to appear on the tonight show made a decision, that would change many things. His family and close friends were unaware of what he was about to say live on Jay Leno’s Show.

On the Show, the Terminator star revealed he was going to run for Governor of California.

Arnold Schwarzenegger 4,206,284 votes (48.6%)

Cruz Bustamante              2,724,874 votes (31.5%)

Peter Miguel Camejo         242,247 votes (2.8%)

The recall happens and people are asking me, ‘What are you going to do?’ I thought about it but decided I wasn’t going to do it. I told Maria I wasn’t running. I told everyone I wasn’t running. I wasn’t running. I just thought [en route to the Tonight Show], This will freak everyone out. It’ll be so funny. I’ll announce that I am running. I told Leno I was running. And two months later I was governor. What the fuck is that? All these people are asking me, ‘What’s your plan? Who’s on your staff?’ I didn’t have a plan. I didn’t have a staff. I wasn’t running until I went on Jay Leno.:
