Schwarzenegger won't take money from tribes
Wednesday, August 27, 2003

Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger says he won't take money from "special interests," and that includes tribal governments.

In an interview with KTKZ-AM radio, Schwarzenegger said it's "wrong" to take money from tribes because as California governor, he would have to negotiate with them. "It is wrong, for instance, to take money from the Native Americans when you negotiate with the Native Americans. I think any of those kind of real powerful special interests, if you take money from them, you owe them something," he said.

Schwarzenegger, considered the leading Republican in California's recall election, is taking money from other sources, however. Although he has said he is "rich enough that I don't have to take anyone's money," he is courting leaders of the agriculture, technology, wine and real estate industries, The Los Angeles Times reports.

The election is scheduled for October 7.
