Father-son legacies

November 21, 2018

New York knows a thing or two about father-son legacies at the State Capitol.  Andrew Cuomo became the first son of a governor to be elected to the same office in 2010.  This week we explore a similar story that occurred on the West Coast.

Former Capitol reporter Miriam Pawel has a new book out titled "The Browns of California: The Family Dynasty that Transformed a State and Shaped a Nation."  It features the unusual political career of outgoing California Governor Jerry Brown who had a 28 year gap between the times he was elected by Californians.
