BetWWTS Offers Odds on California Governor Race

8 September 2003

ST. JOHN'S, Antigua – (Press Release) --The most talked about political race of the year isn't the Democratic Presidential Primary, but the Governor's race in California. In what has become one of the most bizarre political races in American history, the 100-plus certified candidates include numerous actors, a watermelon smashing comedian, an adult film star and the founder of Hustler magazine. Even if you aren't registered to vote in California, you can still get in on the recall election action as BetWWTS.com offers unique betting options on this highly anticipated political race.

The race to become the next Governor of California appears to be a two horse race, according to the odds makers at BetWWTS.com.

Even if you aren't registered to vote in California, you can still get in on the recall election action as BetWWTS.com offers unique betting options on this highly anticipated political race.

The offshore gaming company still lists Arnold Schwarzenegger as the favorite to win the race and be elected the next Governor of The Golden State at 4/7 odds (i.e., win $4 for every $7 bet). Although "The Terminator" is the odds-on favorite, Lt. Governor Cruz Bustamante has closed the gap and his odds are down to 5/4 at BetWWTS.com from opening odds of 7/5 in mid-August. Other notable candidates that BetWWTS.com has created individual odds for include: Peter Ueberroth (8/1), Tom McLintock (10/1), Arianna Huffington (18/1), Loretta Sanchez (25/1) and Peter Camejo (25/1).

In addition to offering odds on who will be elected the next Governor of California, BetWWTS.com has created a betting option on which candidate will win the Game Show Network's "Who Wants To Be Governor Of California" Debating Game®. Of the six contestants appearing on the show, Trek Thunder Kelly, a flamboyant artist, has emerged as the early favorite at 5/2 odds to win the campaign contribution prize of $21,200. Former child star Gary Coleman is the next favorite at 3/1 odds, followed by college student Bryan Quinn at 4/1, and former NBA star Bill Walton's son Nate and tomato farmer Carl Mehr, both listed at 5/1. Adult film actress, Mary Carey has been installed as the long shot to win the campaign contribution at 10/1 odds.
