More details about former President Clinton's visit to Los Angeles in support of San Francisco Mayor and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gavin Newsom. The pair will visit Los Angeles City College on Monday, October 5th before heading off to a fundraiser for Newsom's campaign.

At LACC, they will tour the new LEED-certified Science and Technology Building and talk to faculty and students about education for green technology jobs, including those in solar installation, weatherization and more, according to a campaign news release. There's no word if they will talk about education budget cuts throughout the state.

Newsom is the only front runner Democrat running for Governor, but Attorney Jerry Brown said last week he would soon launch an exploratory committee for a gubernatorial campaign.
