Governor Blagojevich Heads West

By  | 

Gov. Rod Blagojevich is heading to California for two days of political fund-raising and two days of family vacation.

His campaign staff says the governor has three fund-raising receptions tonight and tomorrow. He also has two political meetings.

On his last fund-raising trip to California, Blagojevich collected about $50,000. His staff would not say how much he expects to collect this time.

Blagojevich went to college in California, and his chief of staff is from California.

Once the business is finished, the governor's wife and two daughters will join him Saturday and Sunday for a brief getaway.
