Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) “has among the other largest campaign treasuries in the nation, with $16 million. In the first six months of 2017, he had 34,096 donors who gave $200 or less.” (New York Times)

WHAT CAN BROWN DO FOR YOU? “After running for elected office 12 times since 1970, Gov. Jerry Brown (D) is about to exit the center stage of California politics, no longer the brash upstart but now a senior statesman who could be a model for the next person who will lead the state. … Newsom, whose relationship with Brown stretches back a couple of family generations and deep into San Francisco politics, has been the most effusive in his praise. … But the lieutenant governor is also swinging for the fences when it comes to liberal causes … an activist path far beyond the more cautious Brown.” (Los Angeles Times)
