    Newsome was not going to ask for an endorsement, Hahn pushed for it. Hahn’s signs at the convention said \Jerry and Janice\ which forced Brown to restate he had not endorsed in the race, and also forced him to state that he had no prior knowledge of the signs. In additon, a letter from the Area 2 and 8 directors during the voting blasted Hahn for her signs. To further add fuel to the fire, at her booth, Hahn showed a looping video of Newsome running for Governor and her workers were openly hostile to Gavin’s well behaved positive staff members. I guess that’s the difference between positive San Francisco politics and dirty L.A/ politics.
