Whitman, Brown and Schwarzenegger set joint appearance for campaign's final week
Gubernatorial candidates Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown are scheduled to appear on stage with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger just days before the Nov. 2 election in what is being billed as a conversation about the future of California.
The three will appear together at the Women’s Conference 2010 in Long Beach. The three will discuss the state of the state in a conversation moderated by NBC's Matt Lauer.
Brown and Whitman are scheduled to meet in four debates before election day. The first will take place Tuesday on the campus of UC Davis. The Long Beach appearance is the only Southern California event at which both gubernatorial candidates are scheduled to appear.
The joint appearance was announced by California First Lady Maria Shriver's office Wednesday. Others scheduled to appear at the conference include Oprah Winfrey and former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

And, Matt Lauer will be doing a one on one interview with President Obama specifically on education you will recall that UC was the major donor to President Obama in 2008 and Regent Blum sat next to him at the inauguration- and we also know the recent revelations on Regent Blum. President Obama has discussed the many areas in need of reform in higher education. Now is a good time to ask President Obama about his thoughts on all of the recent events, staff downsizing, funding at UC, CA budget crisis, and the need for transparency at UC etc..
NBC would like to know what questions we would like to ask- the interview will occur on Monday September 27th.

You might also use that same link to pose your question that you would like Matt Lauer to ask Brown, Schwarzenegger, Whitman in Long Beach. I am sure NBC would forward those questions to him for his reference as he prepares for his sit down with Brown, Schwarzenegger, Whitman.
