'I'll Be Back"... Or will He?

There's a little more bite in a California union's attempt to unseat Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The man who has lead the prison guards union in the recall effort has easily won re-election, defeating a challenger who opposed the campaign.

In a sometimes profane speech, Mike Jimenez called Schwarzenegger a "clown" and said the Republican was trying to break the union.

The 30,000-member union, one of the most well-funded and influential lobbying groups in California, initiated the recall campaign last week for what it called "catastrophic leadership failings and inept management."

The governor has branded the effort a ploy to pressure the administration into granting large pay raises to prison guards.
