Jerry Brown Mulls Run for California Governor

Thursday, 23 Aug 2007 04:51 PM

Former California governor and three-time presidential candidate Jerry Brown said he’s weighing another run for the governor’s post when the job opens up again in 2010.

“The thought has certainly crossed my mind, but I haven’t really come to any conclusion,” Brown, 69 – who is now California Attorney General – told the Sacramento Bee.

“I’ve had conversations with people. I’ve certainly talked about it. But I’ve thought about it and I’ve decided I’m not going to think about it in any serious way certainly for the next year.”

In a March poll, Brown topped all potential Democratic gubernatorial candidates with 31 percent of the votes, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Democratic political consultant Bill Carrick told the Bee that Brown has “tremendous advantages” if he seeks to succeed Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, including the ability to raise money, great name recognition, and a job that will keep him in the spotlight for the next three years.

But Republican strategist Ken Khachigian warned that another Brown governorship would mean another Brown run for president.

“If he ran for governor in 2010 and won, he’d start running for president in 2011,” Khachigian said. “The governorship would be too small for him.”
