California Dems Said To Eye Scooter Braun As Potential Candidate For Governor

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Veteran manager Scooter Braun is said to be on the shortlist of some democratic party insiders as a potential candidate for Governor of California.

According to TMZ, several fundraisers and political operatives associated with the Democratic Party have approached Braun because they see him as a more viable candidate than other existing contenders for the office such as Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom and former L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

Braun has made no formal announcement about a candidacy, or even hinted that he may run, but has been active in Democratic political circles for the past year, most notably as a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, TMZ said.

Braun also made some political hay after he gave an emotional and rousing speech at Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester benefit concert in June.
