  Arnie is governor of California
Updated 08 October 2003, 07.00

The Terminator is back!

Hollywood muscleman Arnold Schwarzenegger has been voted the Governor of the US State of California.

Superstar to statesman

He has gone from Austrian bodybuilder - to Hollywood superstar and now - American statesman.

There is huge media interest in Arnie's political career

He's only been a politician for nine weeks, but the people of California wanted a change and for the first time in decades voters decided to sack their governor and bring in a new man.

Californian Glamour

Arnie will be in charge of America's most popular and glamorous state.

California has the big cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco as well as Hollywood and Disneyland.

It's not the first time an actor has been a big politician in the US - Black and white film star Ronald Reagan was the President for eight years back in the 80's.
