Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Brown's effort back in '92 was totally grassroots. He didn't accept donations over $200, and at least in the SF campaign headquarters we sent checks back that were over that amount. Jerry did well in the campaign, up until the media announced that he was considering naming Jesse Jackson as his running mate. At least that's my recollection. And since I took the year off to volunteer for him, used up a large portion of my savings doing so, took a terrible ribbing about the whole thing from most of my friends (also Dems, who now support him, but at the time supported Clinton because they considered Brown too much of a loose cannon), I have a pretty good memory about the time.
