British opposition leader David Cameron is headed to California for a three-day visit.
Cameron, leader of the main opposition Conservative Party, will address the Google Zeitgeist Conference on Thursday in San Francisco.
He'll also head to Los Angeles, and to Sacramento for a meeting with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Cameron took charge of the Conservatives in 2005 on a modernizing ticket. He has built close ties to Google, inviting CEO Eric Schmidt to his party's 2006 conference in southern England.
The meeting with Schwarzenegger follows the governor's decision to cancel an appearance at the Conservatives' annual rally in northern England last week, citing the demands of a special legislative session.
