Newsom Tracker: A campaign close to home

Mayor Gavin Newsom probably wishes he could do nothing today but spend time with his newborn daughter, who came home from the hospital Tuesday.

However, Newsom will at least make one appearance this afternoon to move forward his gubernatorial campaign. The mayor will chat in his first online town hall meeting — an hour-long event starting at 6 p.m.

The chat will be held on Ustream.tv, and will no doubt allow the mayor to reach out to voters while staying close to home.

It's not the first time in recent days Newsom has taken advantage of social networking tools to be closer to family while still at work. On Tuesday, the mayor took part in a Twitter Q&A.
