Vote 2010: Local Elections
Bill Clinton endorses Jerry Brown for Gov.
A day after California Attorney General and Democratic candidate for governor Jerry Brown apologized to former President Bill Clinton for a joke about the Monica Lewinsky scandal, Clinton Tuesday not only accepted the apology, he endorsed Brown for governor.
Clinton issued a statement Tuesday saying Brown would be: "An excellent governor at a time when California needs his creativity and fiscal prudence."
Brown apologized Monday for taking a jab at Clinton about the Lewinsky scandal in response to a campaign ad released by Brown's opponent in the gubernatorial race, Republican Meg Whitman.
The ad shows Clinton criticizing Brown when the two were running against each other for president in 1992.
