Whitman softens stance on U.S. health care law
San Francisco Chronicle

If elected governor, Republican Meg Whitman plans to add California to the list of states suing to overturn the new federal health care law. Or maybe she won’t.

The most recent statements by Whitman’s campaign are much more equivocal than the position she took in March, during the Republican primary. When supporters at a campaign event asked her whether she would “force (her) attorney general” to join the health care suit, she said yes.
