(CNN) Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is weighing in on the California gubernatorial race, announcing Monday she is backing former eBay CEO Meg Whitman's bid for the GOP nomination.

"California is my home and there is only one person running for Governor who can lead the way toward rebuilding our state," Rice said in a statement provided by the Whitman campaign. "In my experiences in and out of government, I find the most effective leaders to be those who maintain a clear vision, mobilize diverse groups, and inspire them to work together in confronting the most pressing challenges.

Rice, the former Secretary of State and National Security Advisor under President Bush, is currently a professor of political science at Stanford University.

5. Whitman, Rice and Pete Wilson, what else?
"I was right then," says Mr. Wilson, who was elected to two terms each as the state's governor and U.S. senator, in a three-hour interview. "I'm right now. I think time has proven me right."

Proposition 187 was introduced by Republican assemblyman Dick Mountjoy of Monrovia as the "Save Our State" initiative.<1> In the general election of November 8, 1994, California voters approved the proposition by a 58.93% margin.<2> It was signed into law by Governor Pete Wilson, a prominent supporter of the proposition, the following day. A number of legal challenges led to the law being eventually overturned in federal court.<3>

6. Pete benefited Meg greatly back then
In between his Mexi-bashing and anti gay ravings. He was known as 'Pito' Wilson, in honor of his dickish nature.
