Schwarzenegger Begins Out-Of-State Fundraising Journey

Sacramento, CA — Governor Schwarzenegger has left on a multistate fundraising swing to raise some of the estimated $50 million his advisers say he´ll need to wage an all-but-certain special election campaign.

Schwarzenegger is scheduled to attend a lunch with Florida Governor Jeb Bush Saturday in Miami.

He then heads to Illinois and Texas, where he ends with a cocktail and dinner party Monday night in Dallas.

Schwarzenegger has proposed three ballot measures to put before voters in a November election that is estimated to cost taxpayers $70 million to $80 million.

He wants to cap state spending; institute a longer probation period for new teachers; and have retired judges rather than lawmakers draw legislative boundaries.
