Gavin Newsom Challenges Jerry Brown to a Series of Debates
One day after submitting paperwork to explore a run for Governor, Attorney General Jerry Brown has been challenged by San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom to debate in all 11 media markets in California. “Our state is in need of real reform—we have a broken system that must be fixed,” said Newsom in a statement. “And now that there are two candidates for governor, we owe the Democratic voters of California an opportunity to compare our visions and platforms side-by-side.”
Republican gubernatorial candidates Steve Poizner and Tom Campbell have already held two debates with another scheduled for October 28. A third Republican candidate, former eBay CEO Meg Whitman, entered the race last week.
Newsom suggested that ten of the debates tackle a sole subject with the final one open to all issues. Although Brown has begun first steps for an official run for Governor, his decision is not expected until next year.
