Brown stars in water bond, rainy day fund ads

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Gov. Brown has launched his first campaign ads of this election season, starring in television spots promoting two initiatives on the November ballot.

The ads promote Proposition 1, a $7.5 billion water bond proposal, and Proposition 2, an initiative to strengthen California's rainy day fund.

Brown campaign spokesman Dan Newman says three ads began airing Wednesday throughout California.

Brown says in one of the spots, "Save water, save money."

Because two of the ads feature the governor, Newman says they are paid from Brown's re-election account. A third ad features state Fire Chief Ken Pimlot and is paid for by Brown's ballot measure committee.

Combined, the accounts have nearly $30 million.

Newman said Brown considers his re-election and the two initiatives a joint campaign.
