This afternoon California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger endorsed Prop. 62. Prop. 62 provides that all candidates for congress and state office run on a single ballot in June. Then, only the top two vote-getters can ever appear on the November ballot.
88% of the $4,000,000 in contributions to Prop. 62 have come in chunks of $50,000 or more. The “top two” system would probably result in the two candidates with the most campaign financing in the primary season being the only two candidates on the November ballot.
Schwarzenegger had earlier promised to remain neutral.
