Brown For Governor Campaign
OAKLAND - Attorney General and Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Jerry Brown today issued the following statement in response to former President Bill Clinton's endorsement:
"I am deeply honored to have been endorsed by former President Bill Clinton, who, after his accomplishment-rich presidency, continues to demonstrate his commitment to bettering our state, our nation, and our world, each and every day."
President Clinton's endorsement, reported today by the Los Angeles Times, included the following statement:
"I strongly support Jerry Brown for governor because I believe he was a fine mayor of Oakland, he's been a very good attorney general, and he would be an excellent governor at a time when California needs his creativity and fiscal prudence...Moreover, the tough campaign we fought 18 years ago is not relevant to the choice facing Californians today. Jerry and I put that behind us a long time ago."
