SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown is celebrating his 76th birthday.
The Democratic governor has spent most of his adult life in politics and announced in February that he will seek an unprecedented fourth term as California governor this year.
Brown was one of the youngest governors when he held the job the first time, from 1975 to 1983. That was before the state's term limits law. He is now the oldest sitting governor.
Brown's spokesman, Evan Westrup, says the governor will celebrate his birthday by gathering for dinner with friends and his wife, Anne.
