Arnold: Actor and former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was at the Hollenbeck Youth Center in Boyle Heights to inaugurate New Way California, his effort to revive the Republican party by attracting more moderate and centrists voters. “Today we are the Titanic, after it hit the iceberg, but before the last bit of the ship submerged,” Schwarzenegger said of the state party. “But unlike the Titanic, we might be able to save Leonardo DiCaprio before he goes under.”
