He's been doing a lot of TV and radio appearances. He has a book out and has been making a lot of speeches. Curiously, very little of his speeches has had anything to do about his current title, Lieutenant Governor of California. That's not a knock on Newsom--clearly, he has his eyes on the big job.
I think he eventually wants to be President.
When you write books, make speeches, and get a coveted appearance on Meet the Press, there's a mission in mind.
