Hillary Clinton should be ready for anything, including an "onslaught, a vituperation, and insult and negativity" as the November general election approaches, California Gov. Jerry Brown said Thursday.
"What my father, another governor of California, always said, 'Never be complacent, never be taken for granted,'" Brown said in an interview on "CBS This Morning."
Clinton should run "as though you're behind, so you win in the end," said Brown, warning that Democrats also need to take the election seriously, as the election between Clinton and Donald Trump is a highly competitive race.
"Politics of the assassins is unpredictability, surprise, and that's more true today than it's ever been in the past," the Democratic governor said on the morning after his Democratic National Convention speech.
"You never know what is going to show up in the world of events, terrorism and all the rest. I'd say Democrats need to be on guard, on alert, and on the attack."
Brown sat near former President Bill Clinton Wednesday night, and told CBS Thursday that the ex-leader was shocked at Donald Trump's Wednesday invitation for Russian agents to find his wife's missing emails.
And even though Trump later said he was being "sarcastic"
with the comment, Brown said Trump's statement shows a "loose-cannon quality."
