Jerry's back!

Here’s the text of the e-mail the Jerry Brown campaign just sent out to “supporters”:

Dear Supporter,

Today, I am formally announcing my candidacy for the office of Governor of California, to deal head-on with the challenges facing this state I love. I have lived in California all my life, and I believe the obstacles in our path are substantial, but not insurmountable. If we have a Governor who will truly commit to dealing personally with the tough choices facing our state, and who will get in the trenches side by side with legislators, we can get California working again.

This campaign will not be easy. I will face an opponent with nearly unlimited personal resources to pour into television ads and attacks. I am counting on your support, and your hard work over the next nine months. I believe I have the experience, the understanding of State Government, and commitment required to move California forward. I look forward [to] your help in this important campaign.


Jerry Brown

And that’s pretty much it. Months and months in the writing, and he still managed to slip a typo in there. Anyway, click here to watch Brown’s official announcement video and here to read the state GOP’s response, such as it is. Oh, and here’s Steve Poizner’s take on Brown’s announcement.

    Glad we’re electing a governor, not a secretary.

    At lease he won’t need on-the-job training like E(xaggerated) Meg will. We tried that with Arnold and look what happened.
