Proposition 89: California Politics without Big Money?

Hosted by

November's elections will likely set new records for campaign spending, led by the race for Governor and 13 ballot propositions. One of them promises to change all that by setting limits on corporate contributions. Proposition 89 promises to take the big money out of politics with spending limits and $200 in public financing of campaigns for state offices. Would spending reform limit special interest influence?  Would public finance mean tax money for negative campaigns?  We'll hear the pros and cons.
