Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Nannette.BMPThere was a flurry of tweeting and other on-line speculation about which journalist would jump in with the first question Thursday when Gov. Jerry Brown unveiled his new budget at a Capitol press conference -- and even a bit of odds-making.

Television journalist Nannette Miranda, however, defied the odds by asking a question of Brown even before he began his presentation -- an innocuous inquiry about his well-being.

That not only earned her bragging rights but an autographed budget summary from Brown saying it was a "great question" to certify her triumph.

"Coolest 1st Question Prize ever!" tweeted Miranda, who is the Sacramento bureau chief for ABC-owned stations in California, when Brown aide Steve Glazer informed her she could come by the governor's office to pick it up.
