Pete Wilson

Team Whitman just rolled out its campaign chair — ex-Guv Pete Wilson — and The Marine had a message for Jerry Brown and his union pals ready to sling $40 million worth of oppo research at Meg: Game on…

Or, as Wilson put it: “Jerry Brown and his allies are beginning the General Election today. We must respond.”

“Meg and our campaign team are beginning the General Election today,” Wilson wrote, “and we are not wasting time.”

That means no more sunshine and rainbows TV ads from Meg. (Somewhere Angelyne is weeping.)

Instead, as Wilson said, “we will expand our ad campaign as needed to take on Jerry Brown and his allies before the conclusion of the primary season.”

And, Pete sez that Team Meg will be stepping out its grassroots support (asking local supporters to reach out to the media), fundraising outreach (yes, silly, to people OTHER than the candidate) and voter outreach. Meg’s “already busy campaign schedule will ramp up quickly” with a Bay Area stop next week.
