Outside Money Pours into Josh Newman Recall over Gas Tax Vote


Outside money is pouring into the campaign to recall first-term State Senator Josh Newman (D-Fullerton), who voted in favor of the hugely unpopular gas tax, giving Republicans a chance at breaking the Democrats’ supermarjority in the State Senate.

According to the Sacramento Bee, a significant portion of the money flowing into the recall coffers is coming from outside of the area, a majority of it from San Diego County.

The Bee reports (original links):

“Of the more than $44,000 in contributions reported by the Reform California committee since early April, at least $29,000 has come from donors in San Diego County, where recall leader Carl DeMaio, a former city councilman and congressional candidate, hosts a radio show, according to a pair of filings by the committee in recent days.”

Less than 10% — or roughly $2,000 — has come from within the 29th Senate District, which is centered on Chino Hills, and covers a vast suburban area at the juncture of three counties (Los Angeles, Orange, and San Bernardino).
