Brown receives $2.25 million from state Democrats

Jerry Brown received $2.25 million in campaign cash from the state Democratic Party’s central committee, his gubernatorial campaign reported this weekend.

The donation by far is the largest single contribution given to Brown, a Democrat and former chairman of the state party. Brown, the state attorney general and former governor, faces no serious opposition in the June 8 Democratic primary.


Brown’s contributions during the past few days included $5,000 from Hollywood executive Ariel Emanuel, the brother of White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel; $25,900 from the California State Employees Association, $12,900 from long-time supporter Lucie Gikovich,  $14,900 from Comcast and $1,500 from political strategist Doug Watts.


Apart from the Democratic Party contribution, Brown has raised about $1 million during the past 10 days.
