Schwarzenegger leaves office with huge state deficit

Hollywood superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger made history seven years ago to become California Governor as a first generation immigrant but left office Monday with a record high state deficit and a near-record low approval rating as governor, Xinhua reports. Californians placed high hopes on Schwarzen­eg­ger when he won the recall election to become governor of the golden state, expecting him to make miracles to lead California out of the deteriorating economy and huge deficit. Former Governor Gray Davis was recalled because of the bad economy and financial situation. What’s worse, Schwarzenegger left his office with a record high deficit of 28 billion dollars, more than double the deficit his predecessor Davis created.
