Schwarzenegger 'Won't Attend' GOP Convention

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will not attend the Republican National Convention if his state’s budget crisis is not resolved before the GOP gathers on September 1.

“I will not make any commitments. I will not go on vacation. I will not leave the state. I will not do anything until I have a budget,” he told the Los Angeles Times.

His state’s budget deadlock is in its seventh week as California faces a $15.2 billion deficit, The Hill newspaper reports.

Schwarzenegger told The Times that he had been in talks with John McCain’s campaign about a speaking role at the convention in St. Paul, Minn., but said that it “is off right now.”

In 2004, Schwarzenegger addressed the Republican convention on its second night.
