Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown to Run for Re-election

Gov. Jerry Brown announced Thursday that he has taken out the papers to run for re-election.

In his typically understated fashion, the 75-year-old governor posted the announcement and a photo to his Twitter account.

"If you had asked me 40 years ago--when I first ran for governor--what I would be doing in 2014, I could never have guessed. Nor could anyone else," Brown said in a statement posted on his campaign website. "Yet, by the grace of God and habits of perseverance instilled in me by my family, the Dominican nuns and the Jesuits, I am here and ready to go."

    And as stupid as he is, the GOP has not a single credible opponent.

    "Credible.....to whom????"
    Certainly no one I've seen; They're spending their time getting worked up about which toilet Johnny pees in.

    Exactly. The Republican Party has clearly lost the Perception War in CA, which is practically a 1 party state now. Get ready for Illinois on the Pacific.
