California state Controller Kathleen Connell is mulling a run for governor in 1998, and already seems to be campaigning getting in a subtle dig on Election Day last week while making a speech at Santa Monica College.

Asked if she voted, Connell the state’s top fiscal officer said: “Of course I did. I live here full-time.”

It’s no secret that former Clinton Administration Chief of Staff Leon Panetta and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, both of whom are also considering gubernatorial bids, have spent the majority of their time serving in Washington.
