      If Jerry is elected, guess we can expect lots of state plumbing contracts.

      I love Gerry Brown. His Dad Edmund Brown was a great governor and so was Gerry back in the day. Linda Ronstadt aside Gerry has a long inventive record in California politics. Gerry has always done what he felt was best for our state even against popular opposition. Gerry Brown has the experience, the tenacity and intelligence to lead California into the future.

      I enthusiastically endorse Gerry Brown for Governor of California.

      Union, union, union! We know where Jerry Brown’s bread is buttered!

      Jerry Brown and Mark DeSaulnier are the stars of the dimmiecrats’ track team. When the union bosses give the command: JUMP! they don’t ask “How high?” they just leap into the air and give it their best shot.
