“Thanks for the kind words about my daughter,” the mayor wrote on his Twitter page, where he announced both his daughter’s birth last Friday and also his candidacy for governor several months ago.
He also wrote: “Picking her up from the hospital after twitter talk!”
The online discussion was scheduled to end at 1:30 p.m.
Newsom’s wife and newborn daughter, named Montana Tessa Siebel Newsom, have been recovering from the birth at the California Pacific Medical Center. His wife was scheduled to return home as well today.
