California Governor Jerry Brown said on Thursday he would seek re-election to another term. Brown's decision to seek another term comes at a time of nearly unprecedented strength for California Democrats who hold large majorities in the state legislature, although it also coincides with a debilitating drought that has deepened regional divides. He begins his campaign with high approval ratings and respect, if at times grudging, from both Democrats and Republicans for guiding state finances back to solvency after a severe recession. His $17 million campaign war chest dwarfs those of his Republican opponents.
