Brown returns to lead a troubled California

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Democrat Jerry Brown has been sworn in as California's 39th governor, returning to the office he left 28 years ago but inheriting a more troubled state than the one he led then.

Now 72, he took the oath of office after being introduced by his wife of five years, former Gap Inc. executive Anne Gust Brown, inside Sacramento Memorial Auditorium.

Brown, who replaces Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, says the financial choices facing Californians will be painful.
