Governor Brown's re-election fund is another 27-thousand dollars richer after a new donation from cigarette maker Phillip Morris USA. The tobacco giant gave Brown 26-thousand dollars last year. Brown is currently weighing another run for California's top job and has yet to announce a campaign. Brown is also raking in cash from big-pharmaceuticals as well.
Brown's campaign finance statement reports 15-thousand dollars came from Genentech. And five-thousand dollars came from Boehringer Ingelheim USA. Both companies are on opposing sides of a controversial bill from State Senator Jerry Hill which would allow biologically similiar medications.
