At the Town Hall event at downtown's City Club, Villaraigosa didn't discourage speculation that he is running for governor and just waiting for the right time to make it official. He has been traveling the state on talking tours and having stories done about him testing the political waters.
Last year, you may remember, he hosted a Hillary Clinton fundraiser in his new Beachwood Canyon home.

The mayor of Los Angeles is dating a local TV reporter -- two years after having an affair with another newscaster that led to his divorce.
That included Bruce Binkow, 61, a boxing promoter, over his lunch at Prawn Coastal. Brown, who has not endorsed anyone in this contest. Brown and trying to turn out an electorate that seems, over all, happy with the direction California is going. Guilfoyle ended in 2006; the mayor remained politically popular.“He rocketed up,” Phil Matier, a political columnist for The San Francisco Chronicle who covered Mr. “I’m not sure he had his helmet on when he did it.”Mr. Newsom’s behavior as “human.”“I know there are people who that sort of thing bothers them,” he said.
Binkow said his thoughts were less on the race and more on what he described as California’s prosperity under the man who has served 16 years as governor over the past 40 years — Jerry Brown, the Democrat stepping off the stage because of term limits.“He was an excellent governor,” Mr. They are facing a stature gap as they are measured, inevitably, against the man they would like to replace. Villaraigosa and Gavin Newsom, the lieutenant governor — were involved in high-profile affairs while they were in public office in the mid-2000s, episodes that have been raised against them during a candidate debate and in a handful of advertisements at a time of heightened awareness of sexual misconduct.“People don’t bring it up in the context of the #Me Too movement — they bring it up as something they remember as part of my record,” Mr. “Just like I think they bring it up for Gavin for the same reason.”The top Republican candidate, John Cox, has been lifted by an endorsement from President Trump, as the state’s diminishing population of Republicans appears to be rallying around him.

Trump’s support could ultimately be toxic in a state where the president is unpopular. And the election is taking place as California enters potentially difficult waters: This transition of power, with an old guard stepping aside, is playing out as the state is engaged in an escalating battle with Mr. Brown and other leading state officials warn that California is overdue for a recession. “I’ve seen two cameras at six events today.”“There is a sense of satisfaction,” he said in an interview. Newsom, who has led the field in almost every poll this year, served two terms as mayor of San Francisco before becoming lieutenant governor in 2011; he grew wealthy with the creation of a small wine and hospitality business empire financed by Gordon P. As mayor, he defied the federal government in backing the legalization of same-sex marriage. Villaraigosa served as speaker of the State Assembly and as mayor of Los Angeles. It was a woman who I had a consensual relationship with.”Voters seem divided as to whether personal behavior should matter.
An extra-marital affair early in his political career threatened to scuttle his support among key LA Democrats, but he remained married to Corina Raigosa (his name is a blend of hers and his family last name, Villar) until the news broke in 2007, while he was mayor, about an affair with TV reporter Mirthala Salinas, who had covered Villaraigosa for Telemundo.

Villaraigosa didn't talk about who she is or how they met.
