Add California's Democratic candidate for governor, Jerry Brown, to the list of politicians who hope to get a boost from a campaign visit by President Barack Obama this month.
During Tuesday night's gubernatorial debate, Brown announced he will campaign with Obama, who will join Brown and Sen. Barbara Boxer in Los Angeles on Oct. 22.
This will be the president's third trip to California, but his first public appearance with Brown, the state's current attorney general and former governor from 1975-83.
Democrats have a 13-point registration edge in California, but many are thought to be disillusioned this year, and turnout will be key on Nov. 2.
