Prince von Anhalt, Zsa Zsa Gabor's Husband, Throw's Hat In California Governor's Race (VIDEO)

In what can only be described as a game-changing shift in the California political landscape, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, ninth husband of Zsa Zsa Gabor, has announced his intention to run for Governor.

KTLA was first with von Anhalt's announcement:

"When I came to California 26 years ago we had the 'Good Life.' We were prosperous; people had jobs, affordable homes and money to spend. The economy was great. I loved the state so much that I decided to make my home here, marry and become a citizen."

"About 10 years ago things started to deteriorate, and last year when the state was at its worst I decided I had to try and make a difference. I decided to enter the political realm and get California back on the right track."

"So today I am announcing that I plan to run for Governor of California! We've had Irish-American, African-American, Armenian-American, and Austrian-American Governors and now it's time for a German-American to lead the state."
