Newsom releases lengthy endorsement list

Mayor Gavin Newsom has released a beefy list of California politicians who have endorsed the mayor for governor.

Nearly 40 elected officials and Democratic party leaders are supporting Newsom’s gubernatorial bid, the campaign said.

“I deeply appreciate the support of these community leaders who work hard on the ground each and every day,” Newsom said.

The list was released a day after Newsom was shown to be trailing Attorney General Jerry Brown in the latest Field Poll. The Newsom camp said it’s way to early in the campaign to bank on polls. The Democratic primary for governor is not until June.
