California's Prop 15 racks up endorsements

In advance of next month's vote, California's Proposition 15, which would set up a public funding program for secretary of state elections, has been collecting media endorsements from the state's newspapers of record, including the Los Angeles Times (which reversed its earlier opposition to the idea), and the San Francisco Chronicle, which noted that "the beauty of Proposition 15 is that it targets an office that should be well insulated from fundraising dependence...Californians have seen what can go wrong when the secretary of state is not an honest broker."

These papers join the Los Angeles Daily News, the Bakersfield Californian, the Daily Breeze, the Long Beach Press Telegram, the San Jose Mercury News, and the Santa Rosa Press Democrat in support.
