It Happened On #10

10 editions! 10 days! A truly momentous occation

Today’s edition of It Happened On will only be in the years 2000+. Most people should remember these events, unless you’re 12 years old

It happened on October 7 2003…Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected governor of California, the most populous state in the nation with the world’s fifth-largest economy. Schwarzenegger came out on top in the 11 week campaign to replace Gray Davis. Schwarzenegger was one of 135 candidates

Also on October 7 2001, President George W. Bush announced that American troops were on the offensive in Afghanistan. The goal was to eliminate the Taliban regime, which had aided and abetted al-Qaida and its leader, Osama bin Laden

I think Schwarzenegger had more success as governor than Bush had as president
