SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California’s colorful and unpredictable governor, Jerry Brown, is preparing to pass another milestone: the state’s longest serving governor.
The Democratic son of former two-term governor Edmund G. Brown will surpass Earl Warren’s 10-year tenure in the office on Monday. Warren served as governor from January 1943 to October 1953 and then joined the U.S. Supreme Court.
Brown was the second-youngest governor when he first took office at age 36 in 1975.
He served two four-year terms before returning to the office at the age of 72 in 2011.
He was able to return because his first terms as governor came before the state adopted term limits.
Brown said Friday that he has no reflections yet on his latest milestone.
Monday is also the 10th anniversary of the recall of then-Gov. Gray Davis.
