Aw: Bill Clinton endorses Jerry Brown

Former President Bill Clinton endorsed Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown today just two days after Brown mocked him during a campaign appearance. Brown apologized yesterday for that statement, in which he questioned Clinton’s honesty and joked about the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Clinton issued his endorsement in a statement to The Los Angeles Times, saying, “I strongly support Jerry Brown for governor because I believe he was a fine mayor of Oakland, he’s been a very good attorney general, and he would be an excellent governor at a time when California needs his creativity and fiscal prudence.”
