Brown Evades Tax Hike Rift in Speech to Calif. Democrats
In his address to the California Democratic Party's annual convention on Saturday, Gov. Jerry Brown (D) conceded that his tax-hike initiative -- which he is seeking to place on the November ballot -- has a "few issues." However, he did not acknowledge a growing rift among Democrats about whether to support his plan or two other competing proposals by Democratic allies.
