Governor Banking On Ballots Measures

Sacramento, CA — Governor Jerry Brown has not only thrown his support, but some funds at two ballot measures in the November 4th election.

Today, Brown reported spending $13.5 million this month from his re-election account and a separate ballot measure committee.  The money went to Proposition 1, the $7.5 billion water bond measure and Proposition 2, which would modify the state’s rainy day fund.

Brown still has more to spend with $27 million left in those two accounts.

The Republican challenger, Neel Kashkari, reported having just $840,000 left.  He has spent $6.2 million, $3 million of his own money.
