Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

brownoaklandport.jpgFormer Gov. Gray Davis and actor Robert Downey Jr. are among the latest donors to Gov. Jerry Brown's re-election campaign, which reported raising another $556,600 in a filing over the weekend.

Nevada-based Station Casinos, which is backing a controversial casino project in Madera County, contributed $54,400, the maximum allowed. Opposition to a gambling compact Brown approved with the North Fork Rancheria Band of Mono Indians this year has sparked a referendum campaign, with a vote on the project set for November 2014.

Brown has not yet said if he will seek re-election but is widely expected to run. The third-term Democrat has raised more than $14 million for the effort and leads a field of Republican opponents by a huge margin both in fundraising and early polls.

Other donors contributing the maximum to Brown in his most recent filing include Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. and Southern California developers Majestic Realty Co. and Jeffrey Worthe.

Davis, Brown's chief of staff when he was governor before, donated $5,000, as did Downey Jr.

Brown received $10,000 from Illinois billionaire J. Christopher Reyes and $10,000 each from two other members of Reyes Holdings LLC, a major beer and food distribution company. NBC Universal contributed $27,200, while Anschutz Entertainment Group Inc. and The Anschutz Corp. contributed $25,000 each.
