Dems Try to Rescue Jerry Brown

But the efforts by the group, which dubs itself, Level the Playing Field 2010, also highlights the weakness of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown, who has run one of the sleepiest statewide campaigns in recent memory. In fact, Brown hasn’t even officially announced his candidacy yet, while Whitman has already flooded the airwaves with campaign ads.
