Jerry Brown: ‘Hug a Republican’
Sacramento Bee

Having encouraged state workers on Tuesday to take Republicans to lunch, Gov. Jerry Brown today asked the California Hospital Association and a group of law enforcement officials to hug them.

“Hug a Republican, make them feel good,” Brown said. “In fact I’m going to go up and down the state to see if I can’t hug Republicans and … tell them, ‘We love you, but give us a break, let the people vote.’”
