"he shunned the governor's mansion in Sacramento in favor of a rented apartment during his first tour in the executive office"

And he doesn't say that he refused to live in this mansion because he was raised there. And he doesn't say he sold this California historical building for 1/4 what it was worth and then turned around and spent three times as much "upgrading the security" at both that rented apartment and his ranch.
