Brown Takes Big Lead in Governor’s Race

State Attorney General Jerry Brown has received a big boost in the polls thanks to the decision by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to drop out of next year’s governor’s race, according to the Chron. With the race for the Democratic nomination now between Brown and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, the former Oakland mayor has opened up a commanding 20 point lead. It appears that most of Villaraigosa’s supporters have moved over to Brown.
