Cal­i­for­nia Gov. Jerry Brown ar­rives in the na­tion’s cap­i­tal Tues­day, and he’ll go straight to the Na­tional Press Club to have his say.

“Be­tween the bat­tle over bor­der se­cu­rity and il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion, the push to le­gal­ize mar­i­juana, and the ef­fort to com­bat cli­mate change, the State of Cal­i­for­nia seems to be con­stantly at odds with the agenda of the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion. For Gover­nor Brown, a man known for em­brac­ing the po­lit­i­cal ‘ca­noe the­ory’ — the idea that if one pad­dles a lit­tle on the left and a lit­tle on the right one can steer safely down the po­lit­i­cal mid­dle — this is not com­fort­able ter­ri­tory,” the press club ex­plains, not­ing that Mr. Brown, 80, is now the longest­serv­ing gover­nor in U.S. his­tory.

He’s then off to an up­town ho­tel to de­liver re­marks to North Amer­ica’s Build­ing Trades Unions 2018 Leg­isla­tive Con­fer­ence, where he will be hon­ored with the “Hats Off Award,” or­ga­niz­ers say.

Mr. Brown, in­ci­den­tally, spent Mon­day in Toronto, Canada, talk­ing cli­mate change and the “fight for the fu­ture of the planet” with On­tario Premier Kath­leen Wynne, fol­lowed by a pub­lic “fire­side chat.”
