LOS ANGELES (AP) — California Gov. Jerry Brown says he will seek re-election.

The 75-year-old Democrat said on his campaign website Thursday he's excited to tackle the challenges facing the nation's most populous state.

The announcement was expected. Brown has been raising money for another run.

He enters the race a favorite in the Democratic-leaning state.

Polls show Republicans in the race so far remain unknown to many Californians.

Brown has made progress easing the state's long-running budget problems, but California is facing a potentially devastating drought, aging freeways strangled with traffic and multibillion-dollar unfunded pension bills.
