The state Democratic Party has not made any endorsement yet for lieutenant governor or AG. And it has roundly condemned both Prop. 16 -- the PG&E-backed measure mandating a two-thirds approval by voters in municipalities hoping to establish their own utilities -- and Prop. 17 -- a tweak to the state's auto insurance laws bankrolled by tens of millions from Mercury Insurance.
California Democrats are also in favor of Prop. 15, which Levine's slate opposes -- though there's no asterisk, so no money ostensibly changed hands. You can read the California Democratic Party's official slate here.
Our calls to the Newsom, Jones and Torrico campaigns to query how much this endorsement cost them have not yet been returned.
Update, 9:40: According to forms filed with the Secretary of State, Newsom has paid $116,000 to the "Voter Information Guide" since January in two installments of $58,000 each on April 28 and May 19. Torrico has paid $120,000, and Jones kicked in $54,250.
Californians to Protect Our Right to Vote payed $15,000 for a Yes on Prop. 16 endorsement, while Californians for Fair Auto Insurance Rates threw down $67,500 toward Prop. 17.
