Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom wants to upgrade his digs and become governor in 2019. But on Friday night at the state Democratic Party convention, the former San Francisco mayor partied like it was 1999, welcoming onto the stage the frosted-tipped band Sugar Ray.
Newsom, 47, joked about his advancing age, particularly compared with much of the crowd at the House of Blues in Anaheim.
The event, hosted by California Young Democrats, wasn’t all about nostalgia. To hear Newsom tell it, “The best is yet to come.”
