Incumbent Governor

Jerry Brown
Democratic



The 2018 California gubernatorial election will be held on November 6, 2018, to elect the next Governor of California. Incumbent Democratic Governor Jerry Brown will be ineligible to run for re-election for a fifth term due to term limits.

Primary election[edit]

A primary election will be held on June 5, 2018. Under California's nonpartisan blanket primary law, all candidates appear on the same ballot, regardless of party. Voters may vote for any candidate, regardless of their party affiliation. The top two finishers – regardless of party – advance to the general election in November, regardless whether a candidate manages to receive a majority of the votes cast in the primary election.

San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer was considered a potential candidate, but during his re-election campaign announced that he would not run for governor in 2018.[97][98] However, as of January 2017, it has been reported that Faulconer was reconsidering his decision and has met with former Mayor of Los Angeles Richard Riordan, who was a 2002 candidate for Governor of California to discuss a potential gubernatorial candidacy.[99] On June 30, 2017, Faulconer posted a statement to his Facebook page officially ruling out a gubernatorial bid.[100]

Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin had also been considered a potential candidate, but she announced that after leaving office as mayor she would become the president/CEO of the Central Valley Community Foundation.[101] Swearengin said after taking this position that now "political ambitions are off the table" and she's "thinking about things in an eight-to-10-year horizon."[101] Swearengin subsequently explicitly ruled out a run, telling reporters she is "firmly not planning to run."[102] Billionaire venture capitalist Peter Thiel had been considered a possible candidate but announced on February 6, 2017 that he would not be a candidate for governor in 2018.
