Tobacco giant Philip Morris USA has pumped another $27,000 into Gov. Jerry Brown’s re-election campaign, according to a campaign finance statement Brown filed with the state Wednesday.

The contribution is in addition to $26,000 the company gave Brown last year.

The Democratic governor has not yet said whether he will seek re-election next year, but he has raised more than $10 million for the effort and is widely expected to run.

Brown is currently in the process of deciding whether to sign or veto hundreds of bills sent to him before the Legislature adjourned last week for the year.
