Mayor skips local scribes, gives interview to AP

The Mayor won't give an extended interview to local media, but he gives one to AP. He all but declares his candidacy for Governor in 2010. He says that Sacto is broken, just as Schwarzenegger said before he broke it even further.

Money shot in the AP puffer is this:
"Villaraigosa, occasionally thumping the table with his fists for emphasis, scoffed at critics who see him as long on promises and self-promotion and short on results. While Los Angeles traffic remains misery for many, he argued he has made improvements, including with potholes. "
One detects a sore spot.

AP politely doesn't ask the Mayor about what he's done for his Latino base.
