A former body-building champion is now the mightiest man in California--
Arnold Schwarzenegger will become California's new Governor.
In yesterday's historic recall election, voters decided to get rid of current Governor Gray Davis and choose the Republican actor as his replacement.
But just hours after Schwarzenegger's victory speech, there's already talk that Democrats may be looking to recall HIM.
Aleen Sirgany joins us now from Los Angeles with more.

The Federal Trade Commission says it's a victory for consumers.
A federal appeals court in Denver says the national do-not-call registry can be enforced, pending an appeal by telemarketers.
The court says the calls can be blocked because they potentially subject consumers to what Congress has called "substantial fraud, deception, and abuse."
Meanwhile, the telemarketing industry argues that the list violates their free speech rights.

Plans for the new Cardinal Glass Plant have cleared a hurdle.

Vinton and Roanoke County officials acknowledge that development will bring change to the McDonald Farm property.
But officials say the Vinton Business Park, will still be developed in a way to minimize the impact on blue ridge parkway viewsheds, and nearby homeowners.
[IN Q=Even though it's in eastern roanoke county]
((CLAY GOODMAN/VINTON TOWN MANAGER: EVEN THOUGH IT'S IN EASTERN ROANOKE COUNTY, WE CONSIDER THIS THE vINTON COMMUNITY AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING THAT WOULD SEVERELY JEOPARDIZE THE COMMUNITY. AND THAT'S WHY OVER THE YEARS WE'VE TRIED TO FIND A GOOD MATCH FOR THIS PARK. AND THIS IS IT? YES.))

Fred Cramer is not so sure. He has lived near the property for 57 years, and remains nervous about traffic and other potential problems.
[IN Q=I think it's a done deal.]
((FRED CRAMER/BUSINESS PARK NEIGHBOR: I THINK IT'S A DONE DEAL. AND I DON'T THINK I'M GOING TO LAY DOWN IN THE ROAD AND STOP THIS ONE, BUT ONCE IT'S DEVELOPED IT'S GONE.))

And that's a concern the county supervisors may hear, when the rezoning request reaches them.

Blacksburg town council will get another crack at a controversial sewer system.
Last night, the planning commission voted to revise the town's comprehensive plan to include a centralized sewer system.
Last month, town council voted to delay the project to allow more study.
Some residents have criticized the plan, saying it's a threat to the environment.
Council will take up the issue at its October 14th meeting.
A court gives Pillotex the O-kay for the 128-million dollar sale of its assets to a group of liquidators.
A federal judge in Deleware said the sale of Pillowtex's brands, plants and equipment to G-G-S-T can proceed.
GGST has said that it plans to sell Pillowtex's assets rather than operate them.
That leaves in question whether any of its 16 sheet and towel factories in North America will reopen, and whether any of the 76-hundred workers who lost their jobs will be rehired.
About a thousand people lost their jobs in Fieldale when the plant there closed in July.
In business news, Some Virginians may have to pay more for power.
Yesterday, Dominion Virginia Power asked state regulators to allow it to raise residential rates by nearly nine percent over two years.
The rate increase would take effect January first, but it first needs approval from the State Corporation Commission.

White House attorneys are screening materials related to the C-I-A leak before handing them over to the Justice Department.
Investigators are trying to find out who leaked the identity of a C-I-A agent, whose husband questioned the Bush administration's claims before the war in Iraq about the threat posed by Saddam Hussein.
President Bush says his staff is cooperating, but he doubts the guilty party will be identified.
The defense may begin presenting evidence today in the trial of Doctor Cecil Knox..
Yesterday, the one member of Knox's staff who pled guilty, rather than go to trial, testified at length against him.
Tiffany Durham said patients were threatened with prosecution if they forged OxyContin prescriptions or sold their pills, but she indicated Doctor Knox didn't follow through.
Knox played "good cop, bad cop" with patients, leaving it up to the staff to account for narcotics, hoping patients would still confide in him.
Office Manager Beverly Boone placed a ban on new patients from the Pulaski area, after police reported a number of Knox's patients there had been caught trying to forge narcotic prescriptions.
Durham testified Boone decided the practice needed to see more new patients, needed the additional revenue, regardless of where they were from. So the ban was eventually lifted.
The government is winding up its case.
The woman accused of abducting a six-year-old Christiansburg girl has made her first appearance in court.
31-year-old Barbara Parker of Roanoke is charged with felony abduction after she and her step-daughter Candice went missing for nearly 12-hours Saturday.
Authorities sent out an Amber Alert for Candice that night.
A couple of hours later, Parker turned herself in to Roanoke police.
Yesterday, she was appointed an attorney.
Parker is being held without bond at the Montgomery County jail.
They were mixing business with barbeque in Bedford County last night, as some local politicians worked the crowd at the annual Jefferson's Assembly.
Sponsored in part by the Lynchburg Chamber of Commerce, the event gives members a chance to talk shop with those candidates running for local office.
They included Republican state senator Steve Newman and his Democratic challenger Bob Clarke.
Newman blasted Clarke last week for a survey where Clarke indicated he opposed Virginia's "right to work" laws.
Clarke later called that a mistake and says he has always been very pro-business.
