It's official, California's Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom is now a candidate for governor.

He filed papers at a place familiar to him, San Francisco City Hall, where he once served as mayor.

Touting California’s nature of leading on many issues, Newsom told reporters the governor's race has taken on added importance.

“The impact that we have in California is outsized and I think we have a campaign where we are not just offering candidates to head the resistance. This is an opportunity to shape the future not just of this state but this nation."

Newsom is a front runner in the June primary, but the November election is expected to be a much tighter race.

A poll released last month by the Public Policy Institute California, put Newsom in a virtual tie with the former mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa.

Newsom is slightly ahead with 23 percent of voters, Villaraigosa has 21 percent.
