Brown camp: Newsom likes Republicans, too

Mayor Gavin Newsom would play hopscotch with a Republican, too, according to Attorney General Jerry Brown’s camp

Steve Glazer, Brown’s senior adviser, shot back Friday afternoon at suggestions by the Newsom campaign that the attorney general was wrong for praising a Republican district attorney from San Bernardino at a recent fundraiser.

Glazer pointed out an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show in May  when Newsom mentioned he would accept an endorsement from Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger “in a second.”

“Is this ‘sleeping with the enemy?’” Glazer said, referring to how we phrased the Newsom campaign’s accusation.

To be fair, Newsom did say during the interview that he’d welcome a Schwarzenegger endorsement because the state’s governor “arguably has become a Democratic governor” as of late.
