Video Roundup: Conventional Wisdom

With no Antonio Villaraigosa in town, this weekend's Democratic confab was Jerry Brown vs. Gavin. And Newsom seized the opportunity to take a dig at Jerry Brown.

 With all of his friends over at the convention, the governor gives a shout out to all of his “Twittering friends."
