Brown for Governor Campaign
DAVIS, Calif. – Fighting off a flurry of distortion and double-talk, Attorney General and Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Jerry Brown tonight scored his first debate victory, drawing a clear contrast in substance and style, while blasting billionaire Meg Whitman for peddling multi-billion dollar tax breaks for California’s wealthiest.
“Jerry Brown was the clear winner in tonight’s debate,” said Brown for Governor Campaign Manager Steve Glazer. “California’s voters saw a clear contrast tonight: Jerry was candid, knowledgeable and real, while Meg Whitman stuck to her stump speech, stayed on script and offered few solutions to our state’s mounting problems.”
“Meg Whitman has a wealth of experience protecting the interests of Wall Street players and corporate executives, so it’s no surprise that these individuals – not working Californians – have the most to gain from her policies,” Glazer continued. “Meg Whitman's economic plan is trickle-down 2.0 – a shoddy, self-enriching plan to eliminate the capital gains tax for California's ultra-rich.”
