Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger casts ballot, declines to say if he voted for Meg Whitman or Jerry Brown

November 2, 2010 | 10:35 am

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger cast his ballot in Brentwood on Tuesday morning, but he remained tight-lipped about who he voted for to succeed him.

"I will tell you all about it later on," Schwarzenegger said as he entered a polling place at a school with wife, Maria Shriver.

Schwarzenegger has declined to endorse fellow Republican Meg Whitman or Democrat Jerry Brown, saying he wanted to avoid offending anyone as he focused on fighting Proposition 23, the ballot measure that would delay his signature environmental achievement, the state's landmark climate-change law.

Schwarzenegger has been a presence on the campaign trail, with both candidates criticizing his seven-year tenure. Last week, he joined Whitman and Brown for an unprecedented panel discussion at the state’s annual Women's Conference in Long Beach.
