Clinton Rallies for Brown, Newsom at UCLA
Former President Bill Clinton was in SoCal yesterday for some campaign support, with stops in Santa Ana and Los Angeles to rally for his fellow Dems running for election.
At UCLA, Clinton spoke in support of gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown. "Clinton was his vintage self," describes The LA Weekly, "which is to say that he held the crowd in rapt attention while rattling off reams of statistics and policy wonkery in his homespun way."
Though the former President talked briefly about climate change and California's AB 32, he predominantly "talked about the economy and what that means for Democrats in the mid-terms." He, along with other high-profile California Democrats, including Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, were also there to support San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, on the Dem ticket for Lieutenant Governor.
The thousands of fans were there ostensibly for the current candidates, however "the star status was clearly reserved for Clinton, who was swarmed by adoring crowds after he left the stage to mingle amidst the masses as Brown exited at the back," remarked an AP report published by the HuffPo.
