According to the Associated Press, former eBay Inc. chief executive Meg Whitman has edged closer to a run for California governor. The Republican is strongly considering a run for the seat when Arnold Schwarzenegger's term is up in 2010. Whitman confirmed on Monday that she has resigned from three corporate boards. A person who is knowledgeable about Whitman's political aspirations told the AP "that the 52-year-old Silicon Valley leader is planning to run for governor in 2010, not the seat of Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, who will be up for re-election in two years."
