Democratic gov candidate Jerry Brown's first TV ad promises "the know-how to get California working
Democrat Jerry Brown has officially launched his Labor Day gubernatorial campaign offensive -- a barnstorm of the state that includes the debut of his first TV ad to counter Republican Meg Whitman.

"Meg Whitman and her allies have spent $130 million, much of it attacking Jerry Brown," said Brown campaign manager Steve Glazer in a statement today. "The attacks are false, the voters don't buy it, and they are ready to hear Jerry Brown explain how he'll turn California around."

Brown, in the spot, looks at the camera and says that California "needs major changes. We have to live within our means, we have to return power and decision-making to the local level, closer to the people. And no new taxes without voter approval."

1. well.. it's a start
lets hope there's more.
Remember Gray Davis won his elections by fighting like a republican... but with the truth! (which is why they did the imho illegal, recall, because they KNEW they could not beat him face to face)

2. Campaiging in CA prior to mid September is a waste of time
at best. Jerry has done this before. Meg bugged people all summer with this election stuff, which was not yet at the top of the list. That nagging will not serve her, nor Carly. Their consultants knew that, but saw the stacks of cash and said 'spend early, spend lots'.
