Newsom: Limit Cali biz with ‘oil-based’ Iran

California contractors would be limited from doing business with Iran’s energy sector if Mayor Gavin Newsom is elected governor, his campaign announced today.

The Gavinator “would sign an executive order requiring disclosure of any connection” with Iranian energy interests “or any firm assisting the regime with sensitive technology,” a campaign statement said.

The mayor in the statement said he is “committed to divesting our state’s interests” from an “oil-based Iranian regime.”
