  •  Bill Clinton endorsed Jerry Brown on 9/14/10 (9+ / 0-)

    After Brown, California’s attorney general and Democratic gubernatorial nominee, apologized for making a Monica Lewinsky joke Monday that was caught on video, Clinton said Tuesday that he is endorsing Brown in his November race against Republican Meg Whitman.

    “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,” the former president said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times. “Moreover, the tough campaign we fought 18 years ago is not relevant to the choice facing Californians today. Jerry and I put that behind us a long time ago.”

    Brown, whose rivalry with Clinton is well documented, said in a statement and Twitter post that he was “honored to get the endorsement.”
