"Hi, I'm Don Perata, and I'm a girlie-man." - - - Senate President pro Tempore Don Perata

"We're right and he's just far-right." - - - State Treasurer Phil Angelides

"… We are the party of innovation, we are the party of accountability, and we are the party of investing in this state's future." - - - State Controller Steve Westly

"Voters gave Arnold Schwarzenegger a chance when he became governor … now they see that what they thought they were getting is something quite different." - - - U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi

"We will say no to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's attempt to take $2 billion out of the education budget. Governor, keep your promise to the children of California and fund public schools. We don't need any more corrupt Republicans in office in this country." - - - DNC Chairman Howard Dean
