The nation may be focused on November's presidential election, but former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom is already looking at the race for California governor two years from now.

The Lieutenant Governor says he will run for the state's top spot in 2014, but only if Jerry Brown does not seek re-election.

Newsom is at Democratic National Convention, but he did not get a speaking role. Potential rivals like Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Attorney General Kamala Harris did get time at the podium.
