Quotes

...culture of corruption in the state Capitol is the link between political fundraising and government action," said Schnur, a Los Angeles resident. "if we forbid fundraising while the legislature is in session, we can weaken that link and begin to clean up that culture."
Schnur campaign spokesman Rob Stutzman, however, said: "we're not surprised we're in single digits. the path in june for an independent is trickier, but it gives dan a distinct advantage in november. once voters are aware there is a reform candidate, they want to vote for them."
