Brown For Governor Campaign
OAKLAND - Highlighting the stark contrast Meg Whitman's hometown newspaper has drawn between the billionaire Republican and Attorney General and Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Jerry Brown, the Brown Campaign today released a new television ad that details the newspaper's views on Whitman's dishonesty, inexperience and weak solutions.
"Californians deserve a governor who is experienced, principled and honest, not a self-serving, self-dealing, self-interested billionaire with no experience, half-baked solutions and an aversion to the truth," said Brown for Governor Campaign Manager Steven Glazer. "While newspapers across California have endorsed Jerry Brown for Governor, Meg Whitman's own hometown newspaper says she has a ‘loose relationship with the truth.'"
The Brown Campaign's newest television ad began airing statewide today. The ad drives home the differences between the two candidates using language from an editorial in Meg Whitman's hometown newspaper, the San Jose Mercury News. The newspaper's endorsement of Jerry Brown highlights his knowledge, experience and know-how, while questioning the billionaire Whitman's readiness, experience and understanding of government.
The ad closes by reminding voters of the other newspapers that have endorsed Brown's candidacy for Governor, including the: Los Angeles Times, Oakland Tribune, Sacramento Bee, and San Francisco Chronicle.

Narrator: Meg Whitman's hometown newspaper said it best: Meg Whitman has demonstrated a loose relationship with the truth, a poor understanding of government, pat solutions for problems whose depth and complexity clearly elude her. She utterly lacks the qualifications to be Governor.
Jerry Brown offers California exactly what it needs: good ideas, strong principles, a reputation for telling the truth and the ability to get things done in Sacramento.
Meg Whitman's hometown newspaper and newspapers across the state have endorsed Jerry Brown for Governor.
