CA Update: Pombo Race Close; Dream On, San Fran!

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Early updates from the Golden State: Pombo barely ahead of McNerny, 50.7 to 49.3—too early for either to qualify for endangered species protection. Pombo-sponsored anti-environmental “eminent domain” prop is up 50.8 to 49.2 with 19% of precincts in.

Meanwhile, 59% of San Franciscans have voted for a city policy calling for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney. Wanna take bets on how long it takes for some savvy GOPer to use this as an example of the new Congress’ “San Francisco values”?

Update: The Pombo-McNerny numbers were flipped. Advantage: treehugger.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
