Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair and California Democratic Party Vice Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement on the only California gubernatorial debate between Governor Jerry Brown and Republican gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari:
“Tonight, Governor Brown scored a knock out, clearly demonstrating the difference between his proven leadership in moving California forward, versus Republican Neel Kashkari’s out-of-touch, naïve and gimmicky perception of state governance.
“If California is to continue on the path to recovery and progress, we need real leadership and real solutions. Governor Jerry Brown has demonstrated that he is the exceptional leader with the experience and solutions to get the job done.
“In the race for Governor, the choice is crystal clear: Jerry Brown understands the needs of working Californians, knows how to stand up and fight for them, and has worked tirelessly to put the Golden State back on track. I urge every Californian to vote to re-elect Governor Jerry Brown.”
