SACRAMENTO (AP) - Georges Marciano, a co-founder of the Guess
clothing empire, is the latest person seeking to become governor of
California.

The one-time fashion magnate registered paperwork on Monday with
the secretary of state's office to run as an independent in 2010,
when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is termed out.

Marciano publicist Rod Harrell says the 62-year-old Beverly Hills resident will run as an independent because he doesn't want to be tied to a "good old boys network."

Marciano founded the fashion empire in 1982 with his three brothers after moving to the U.S. from France. The brothers bought out Georges Marciano's share for $240 million in 1993.

Harrell says Marciano now works in real estate and has had extensive interactions with state and federal agencies.
