Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

In an interview with the Associated Press, Jerry Brown, California's attorney general and likely 2010 candidate for governor, talked about his pursuit of the state's top job -- the one he held for eight years decades ago.

The quote of the story was Brown criticizing his rival, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom:

Brown is quick to reject comparisons to Hillary Clinton, whose presidential bid foundered last year after rival Barack Obama framed her candidacy as a relic of the past. "Newsom is trying to make everyone think I'm Hillary, and he's Obama, but those analogies just don't work," Brown said of his Democratic rival.
