TULARE, Calif. (AP) - California Gov. Jerry Brown is calling on Republicans and Democrats in Congress to compromise on legislation to help the state's drought-stricken agricultural heartland.

Brown made the comments on Wednesday during a brief visit to the 47th Annual World Ag Expo in Tulare, where he met with farmers and spoke to news media. The governor said political fighting will do nothing to help farmers dealing with the drought.

Republicans and Democrats in Washington have proposed competing legislation aimed at drought relief.

Brown said he is doing what he can to find middle ground, although he was not more specific about what those efforts were.

His visit to California's agriculture region comes after he declared a drought emergency in January. President Barak Obama is scheduled to visit the region on Friday.
