Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Gov. Jerry Brown said this morning treatment for his prostate cancer is finished and that he is "raring to go."

"I'm ready, I'm raring to go, and don't expect me to leave too soon," the 74-year-old, third-term governor said at a news conference at the Capitol.

Brown's remarks were his first about his illness, which his office announced last month. The Democratic governor underwent a short course of conventional radiotherapy for early-stage, localized prostate cancer, his office said.

Brown discussed the matter only briefly at a news conference about California's prison system.

Asked if he is better following treatment, Brown joked, "You choose."
