California Gov. Jerry Brown is endorsing Hillary Clinton just a week before the state’s June 7 primary.
In an open letter tweeted Tuesday, Brown writes that Clinton has the best shot at stopping Republican Donald Trump, whose candidacy he calls “dangerous.”
The governor says that while he’s impressed with how well Bernie Sanders has done, he believes a Clinton candidacy is the only path forward for Democrats to win the presidency.
Brown says Clinton’s lead over Sanders is insurmountable. He points out that voters have given her about 3 million more votes and hundreds more delegates.
Brown says that with Clinton’s long experience, especially as secretary of state, she has a firm grasp of the issues and will be prepared to lead on day one.

I can’t think of a better reason to not vote for Clinton. Brown is a total loon. Trump is in deed a danger to Hillary, Brown, and all others like them.
Jay Bell says
Jerry Brown is one of the most corrupt and crazy Dems to come along. Why should it surprise us that he is on the Clinton team?
Patsy Sanchez says
Brown is no better look at what is happening in California and people still vote for him. This is discussing just like his buddy Hillary. Two of a kind.

the ca people that voted for him just wanted the free hand outs
This is party politics. It has nothing to do with Trump. The only danger for the establishment types from Trump is their royal rear ends will get kicked to the unemployment line. Which is long over due!

There isn’t any surprise here. Hillary has the connections to bring all the party leaders into her camp. The problem for Hillary is that the party leaders aren’t the only ones who will be voting on election day.
I’m old enough to remember when Jerry Brown was known as “Moonbeam” and for good reason! His governorship has increased illegal aliens, gang violence and bankrupted the state treasury. Similar to what is occuring in many areas that have long been under democrat control. Shall we say “Baltimore?”. His endorsement of Killary is a trade for federal tax dollars if she gets elected.

How the people of California can be so blind to elect a horses a** like Brown for their Governor is a total mystery to me.This clown is as worthless as teats on a boar.

Brown endorsing Hillary just helped trump because he is a dumb ass crook a out of touch as she is. I live in california for now because of work but i can not wait to get out of this fucked up state.
Hillary had and has the support of super delegates and just plain delegates. All the more reason not to vote for her. If it was anyone else , they would be long gone. Why do women and blacks want her ?
Brown Who? He is just like Hillary. His support is for her is a plus for Trump.
