The Sacramento Bee…
In the March poll, Brown was the preference of 26 percent of Democratic primary voters when matched against Newsom and five other potential candidates.Even better...
Now, the former governor and Oakland mayor has support from 47 percent while Newsom wins 27 percent support in a poll question offering only those two Democratic choices.
The Field Poll found Brown easily beating any of the three GOP candidates among all registered voters, with Newsom winning by a smaller margin.I'm an unabashed Jerry Brown fan. During my exile in LA, I voted for him for governor (twice) and US Senator. I was a Brown delegate to the 1992 DNC. I've admired from afar his comeback trail from CA state party chair to Mayor of Oakland to Attorney General, his third statewide office.
It seems the time is ripe for the return of the state's premiere progressive visionary to the governor's office. After all, as a feature at his website reminds us, the first time he became governor, he followed an actor.
Run, Jerry, run!
