Jeffe Examines Fundraising Efforts in CA Gov. Race

October 2, 2009

Variety quoted SPPD Senior Fellow Sherry Bebitch Jeffe in an article on the fundraising efforts of Gavin Newsom and Jerry Brown, who are seen as the gubernatorial frontrunners for the California Democratic Party. “We are talking about California,” Jeffe said, referring to the use of filmmaker Roman Polanski’s case in the governor’s race. “I think it is going to be a minor issue for anyone who is running. The people who are going to be totally up in arms aren’t going to vote for a Democrat, anyway.”
