(AP) - California Gov. Jerry Brown says U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz's views on climate change make the Texas Republican unfit to run for president and that he would entertain making another bid for the White House himself if he were 10 years younger.
Brown, a Democrat who turns 77 next month, made the remarks during an interview that aired on "Meet the Press" on Sunday. Host Chuck Todd asked the governor to respond to a video clip of Cruz saying that science doesn't support the dire warnings of global warming "alarmists."
Cruz announced Monday he is seeking the GOP presidential nomination.
