Edmund Gerald "Jerry" Brown, Jr. is an American attorney, politician and member of the Democratic Party who has served as the 39th Governor of California since 2011, having previously served as California's 34th Governor from 1975 to 1983.

Both before and after his original two terms as Governor, Brown served in numerous state, local and party positions and he has three times run for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States.

The son of Pat Brown, who served as the 32nd Governor of California from 1959 to 1967, Jerry Brown began his political career as a member of the Los Angeles Community College District Board of Trustees before serving as Secretary of State of California.

He was elected Governor in 1974 and ran in the 1976 Democratic presidential primaries, finishing a distant third in the convention vote, which was won by Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter.

Brown was re-elected Governor in 1978 and ran again for President in 1980, challenging President Carter.

His candidacy did not gain traction and he withdrew having failed to carry a single state.

Brown declined to run for a third term in 1982, instead running for the United State Senate.
