Meg Whitman says Jerry Brown needs a plan, not town halls

  Meg Whitman
GOP gubernatorial nominee Meg Whitman said Democrat Jerry Brown should start communicating to voters what he would do as governor instead of demanding she participate in a multitude of town halls.

"There will be plenty of debates," she said, speaking to reporters after the state Republican Party's victory rally in Anaheim. "What I would say is Jerry Brown, instead of calling for debates, he should lay out his plan for California."

She noted that she had put out a 48-page policy book, though Brown's website was thin.

"No one has been more specific about a plan for California than me," Whitman said. "Go to Jerry Brown's website, there's nothing there. He ought to put a specific plan down, and then we can have a good debate."

Whitman declined to say how much more of her personal wealth she would spend on her gubernatorial run beyond the $71 million she had invested in the primary. When a reporter noted that her overall campaign spending cost about $90 per vote, she said the money was well spent.

"I'm the Republican nominee for governor for the state of California, so I am delighted with the results," she said.
