Governor Brown Receives Donation From Phillip Morris

 
Governor Brown Receives Donation From Phillip Morris
Posted September 19th, 2013 @ 6:31am by KFBK News

Governor Brown's re-election fund is another 27-thousand dollars richer after a new donation from cigarette maker Phillip Morris USA. The tobacco giant gave Brown 26-thousand dollars last year. Brown is currently weighing another run for California's top job and has yet to announce a campaign.  Brown is also raking in cash from big-pharmaceuticals as well.  

Brown's campaign finance statement reports 15-thousand dollars came from Genentech. And five-thousand dollars came from Boehringer Ingelheim USA. Both companies are on opposing sides of a controversial bill from State Senator Jerry Hill which would allow biologically similiar medications.
