California Attorney General and democratic candidate for governor Jerry Brown talks with reporters after voting June 8, 2010 in Oakland, California. California voters are heading to the polls to vote in the primary elections for governor, U.S. Senate and other statewide and local races.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown says he intends to bring fire power to his so far low-key campaign effort. 

Brown tells MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews that he'll step up his campaign for California governor before Labor Day. He says he won't let former eBay chief executive Meg Whitman buy the race with her own fortune.

Brown on Friday also defended his decision not to immediately respond to any of Whitman's recent television commercials with his own paid advertising. 

Since winning the Republican primary in June, Whitman has been airing at least three TV ads statewide. A union-backed group is running its own ads supporting Brown.

A Field Poll released earlier this week showed the two are virtually tied.
