Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Some politicians reward their campaign volunteers with dinner or a signed photograph. Gov. Jerry Brown will let you meet his dog.

The California Democratic Party announced this afternoon that Brown's Pembroke Welsh corgi, Sutter, will visit 30 Democratic field offices throughout the state on behalf of Brown's initiative to raise taxes. The animal will appear on a "limited edition Sutter Brown trading card" available to volunteers, the party said.

"With only two full weeks left before Election Day we're unleashing our cutest and cuddliest secret weapon out into the field," party spokesman Tenoch Flores said in a prepared statement.

Brown can use all the help he can get. His tax measure, Proposition 30, hangs precariously above 50 percent in public opinion polls.

Brown has previously brought his dog to campaign events. At a news conference in August, the pet came dressed in a red vest with Proposition 30 stickers on it.
