Former Oklahoman running for Governor of California

(Miami, Oklahoma-AP) -- A car salesman from Oklahoma has joined a crowded slate of California gubernatorial candidates.

Jim Vandeventer Junior is a former Miami, Oklahoma, resident now living in Los Angeles.

Vandeventer is a 40-year-old gay Republican who thinks the Bush administration is hijacking the state by backing actor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

He says California Governor Gray Davis should've been allowed to finish his second term.

Vandeventer is putting up $100,000 for his campaign. He considers himself 90% Democrat and 10% Republican despite his registration.

He says he's a pro-choice, relatively pro-gun environmentalist who supports same-sex unions and bringing back family values and ethics to society.
