Though the Democratic candidates for Governor are likely still licking their wounds after a bruising campaign, Democrats are already talking about uniting behind the winner for the general election.

Phil Angelides defeated Steve Westly in the primary – but an aide with his campaign says Westly is ready to help Angelides defeat Schwarzenegger in the fall. Democratic State Assemblyman Mark Leno from San Francisco says it won’t be tough to come together:
“Governor Schwarzenegger makes it easy to unite”
Democratic State Senator Gil Cedillo says it’s just a matter of time:
“The Democratic party has to come together – we share the same vision, we share the same objective and that’s to defeat Arnold Schwarzenegger and so we’re going to come together as soon as possible.
For his part, Schwarzenegger is kicking off his campaign with a two-day state-wide tour, starting today. (Wednesday)
