Jerry Brown to host Democratic governors in Los Angeles
Gov. Jerry Brown will host his fellow Democratic state executives in Los Angeles next week at the annual meeting and holiday party of the Democratic Governors Assn.
The two-day meeting at the Beverly Wilshire hotel Monday and Tuesday will include a panel discussion on jobs and the economy and a series of private meetings, according to the DGA’s website.
The gathering will end with a private party at the Pacific Design Center.
The head of the group, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Mally, is often talked about as a potential White House contender in 2016. Joining the meeting will be three Democratic governors-elect: Steve Bullock of Montana, New Hampshire’s Maggie Hassan and Jay Inslee of Washington.
Currently, 20 of the nation’s 50 goverors are Democrats. That number will drop to 19 next year, with Republican Pat McRory’s recent victory in North Carolina.
