Crowd chants: "Yes on 30!
Yes on 30!"
At a lunchtime rally at UCLA, Brown challenged the crowd of students to help end the state's persistent budget deficits:
Brown: "Proposition 30 is an
opportunity for the people themselves not only to fix California
but to send a message to the rest of the country that we as a
people can invest together in our schools and our community
colleges and in the great University of California."
But Aaron McLear with the No on 30 campaign says voters should force the governor and state lawmakers to make better budget decisions:
McLear: "Go back to the drawing
board. Prioritize education over your pay raises, your bullet
train, your pensions. And make sure that we're getting the
money to the right place."
Brown faces a tougher task than he did during his last campaign swing. Prop 30 still leads in the polls, but it's slipped of late and is now hovering at around 50 percent support.
