7:10 am
after more than a year of campaigning, voters will finally weigh in on the 2010 election this coming tuesday. to help break down all the facets of this complicated ballot today, our political analyst is joining us for a double-heard. later on this morning, we will talk about the propositions on the ballot. right now, we want to talk about the candidates and issues really framing this election. in your opinion today, looking toward tuesday what is framing the election? >> the governorship, of course, the crown of all the races here, and jerry brown and meg whitman
7:11 am
have gone at t interesting, they really differentiate themselves as we have gone along, chris, the economy, safe infrastructure issues, wedge issues, gay marriage, immigration, taxes, the role of money in this election is absolutely amazing. $500 million, $500 had million will be spent in california alone on all the various campaigns from the senate down to water districts. >> i'm thinking if candidates wrote checks to the state of california they would get elected. instead of campaigning, we will give you money. >> see if that happens for meg whitman. an awful lot happened, so far, a tight race. >> how do we distinguish between the two major parties? they try to set themselves apart, don't you think? >> i think so and it has really become easier, actually to differentiate between candidates, as time has gone on. in case of the governorship, for example, jerry brown, he is an insider, let's face it 40 years of government experience and he claims that this is the time to
7:12 am
put all that experience to work. meg whitman, hey, she is an outsider, no question about it, with no government experience, who claims that more of the same will get us nowhere at a time when we need to move forward. and that way, you know, each side can abuse the other as a been there, done that candidate. kind of interesting how they use the same kind of logic against one another. >> we want to talk about the race between barbara boxer and carly fiorina, a lot of ads. >> yes, another race easier and easier to separate. they are more different, more ideological extremes, full, more so than brown and whitman. look, barbara boxer, again, has a record a long record, 28 years in the house and the senate, pro-choice, a concern for environmentalism, wants a path for citizenship for illegal immigrants. all this is clearly laid out. carly fiorina has her own set of issues and she, too, is very different, pro-life, opposes bills such as ab 32 assembly
7:13 am
bill designed to change california's emissions policy, use it as a job-killer bill and want no, sir safe haven for illegal immigrants. you know what chris, each of these has a liability, no question about t barbara boxer's liability, part of the "establishment, a year people want nothing to do with the establishment. that is all there is to it. carly fiorina's liability, core values are probably further to the right from california's mainstream than barbara boxer. so when you look at it all, anybody who says these two are alike, brown or whitman are alike, no, no, no great differences and depend where they fit with your values. >> in a little bit, we will talk more about proposition on the ballot and why folks are watching that barbara boxer race with carly fiorina even outside our borders. >> you me. >> get a cup of coffee. we will see you in a minute. thank you, lar way. front-runners for the governor's seat spend the weekend campaigning, a great party candidates spending the

on to decision 2010 now, supporters will be leafletting neighborhoods today to legalize marijuana. campaign volunteers will campaign bay area cities to spread its message about the measure. campaign volunteers also man phone banks today as part of their final push. meantime, what the no on 19 lacks in campaign funding it makes up for in high-powered political support. governor arnold schwarzenegger, senator dianne feinstein and president obama all oppose prop 19. texas is t moving from the baseball die mopped to the political arena. this morning this ad is running in newspapers opposing the mesh sure that would overturn the state's climate law. as you can see it has a world
7:45 am
series twist aimed at the texas oil companies who backed the bill. the ad says texas to oil companies are trying to rewrite the rules of the game and steal home from california voters. tuesday's statewide election is just around the corner, many of us are still confused about some of those proposition on the ballot. today larry gersten is going to help us sort out some of the tough ones, can we start by saying thank goodness they are not leafletting and not rallying anything else? let's start with the decriminalization of marijuana. >> yep. >> you know, only recently did we see tv ads for this one. >> yeah this is -- campaigns go, chris this had is not a well-financed campaign, one way or the other. all of the propositions actually, all nine of them this is the easiest one to understand it is pretty straightforward in terms of intent to make it legal for any adult to grow, own and use marijuana. that is about it. now why?
7:46 am
well, supporters say that the current policy is pretty much a sham, especially if you think of the medicinal marijuana places and so what and the state tax possibilities of $1 to $2 billion anally, you know how we are hurting when it comes to the state budget. to opponents counters marijuana, opens harder drugs and federal law prevents any state from legalizing the drug this is on the ballotby the way on three other states, so, interesting to help see any of the four passes this initiative. >> recent polls show it is a dead heat or failing. >> recent polls say it is losing but the yes on 19 votes say their internal polls, right, been there before, say it is winning. >> on top to proposition 23 it would suss spent the implementation of climate laws but the actual name doesn't have to do with jobs. >> that is part of the mystique, full, of all ballot propositions, almost all of them you touched on this one a couple
7:47 am
minutes ago, one way or another, this has a lot to do with the state's economy, pure and simple. supporters say that passage of the proposition this one, 23, will save jobs that would be lost because companies would rather leave california than convert their complicated emissions systems. now, many also say that the claims of greenhouse gas pollution are very exaggerated. there is that side to the 23 argument, opponents very strong on this one. they point to the cost of greenhouse gas emissions not on the environment but people in the form of asthma and lung-related diseases and also see this new law opening the way to hundreds of thousands of green jobs. i tell you something, oil companies have pushed, as you mentioned in that story, oil companies have pushed very hard on proposition 23. interesting venture capitalists oppose it, spending millions. why? they think the wave of the future are the new green companies. >> you mentioned that a couple
7:48 am
weeks ago. thought it was very interesting. move on to proposition 25, 26 though deal with budgets and taxes. >> yep. once again, budgets, taxes, maybe even jobs. the folks from proposition 25 say that it is time to make the budget something that is passed by a majority vote, a simple majority, instead of the two-thirds arrangement, which as we know, last time around, took 100 days before that budget was passed. they say the state can't afford budget gridlock, the measure easier to pass a budget two thirds vote required to pay taxes would remain in place but opponents now say if passed, the legislatudggislature would be irresponsible, easier to raise taxes. >> a valid argument, do you think? >> truth be told, nothing to do with raising taxes, nothing to do more than ever. an old story here, chris, comes to all the proposition, people are very loose when it comes to interpret stating the data,

making claims, on almost all sides, quite often what happens is they take a piece of it, a snippet of it, means it is going to be fewer jobs, less jobs, i will tell you something, totally related to everying we are talking about now, please, it is so important, pay a little attention to these commercials. on almost all sides. in fact, they bury so far, so far away from the truth. pay little attention. pay little. little. >> very little. >> no. no attention. >> no on commercials. >> because, in fact, what happens is they take david, take information, they twist it around, you have got to read these things see how other people like or don't like. >> california voter's guide in the mail and on our website, nbcbayarea.com with, a full guide there also talk about prop 26, which take us in the opposite direction. >> yeah. yeah. the other side of this. prop 26 takes it in the opposite direction. why? in this case it requires the
7:50 am
legislature to get a two-thirds vote on every revenue issue, including these. it also requires local government to go to the voters on every revenue issue before the voters. now, supporters say that the people must have a final say on all tax and fee proposals, period. opponents, on the other hand, counter that this requirement will hamstring governments and prevent them from getting anything done. this, chris, is the sleeper of all the propositions, oil companies, the chamber of commerce, beverage companies, liquor companies, tobacco companies, all spent a ton of money, more than $20 million because they want this passed. >> they don't have to disclose where the funding comes from some of the ads either. get larry's political blog and insight on nbcbayarea.com. you can type in prop zero or lo for the prop zero tab on the top. complete voters tab, 2010. busy time for you, larry?
