The latest Field Poll is out. Two months ago Steve Westly was trailing Phil Angelides in the race for the Democratic gubenatorial nomination in California by 8 points. Now he's 11 points ahead. It should come as a surprise to no one that this turn follows a wildly expensive advertising buy. I don't know that I have a workable solution to this - but it continues to deeply trouble me that very rich individuals have that kind of advantage in key elections across our country.
The Democratic primary in California is in June.Posted by armand at April 16, 2006 10:18 AM | TrackBack | Posted to Politics
