Déjà vu All Over Again

Brown For Governor Campaign

OAKLAND - As Meg Whitman continues her Schwarzenegger-like bus tour of California's fast food restaurants, Brown spokesman Sterling Clifford released the following statement:

"Meg Whitman likes to tell Californians that she doesn't owe anyone anything, but she owes Governor Schwarzenegger more than she wants to admit.
