Sen. Feinstein to Co-Chair Campaign Against Marijuana Legalization

More

Marijuana legalization looks like it might be viable as a ballot measure in California this year, but the opposition campaign has secured the endorsements of big-name politicians in California, including one of its co-chairs.


The No on Prop. 19 campaign announced today that Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein will serve as co-chair of the campaign. From the press release:

"California will not see a single positive result if Proposition 19 passes," said Senator Feinstein. "It is a poorly constructed initiative that will cause harm to Californians on our roadways, and in our schools, workplaces and communities. I look forward to working with Sheriff Baca to ensure we defeat Proposition 19 in November."

Feinstein endorsed the campaign in July Co-chairing the campaign along with her will be Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca.

The No on Prop. 19 campaign has secured the endorsement of every big-ticket candidate for statewide office, Republican and Democrat alike. The campaign says it has secured endorsements from both Senate candidates, incumbent Democrat Barbara Boxer and Republican challenger Carly Fiorina; both gubernatorial candidates, Democratic Attorney General Jerry Brown and Republican former eBay CEO Meg Whitman; both the Republican and Democratic candidates for attorney general; and Democratic San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.
