This is a sly piece by a Republican legislator in California to steal Dem electoral votes in California under the guise of trying to make for "fairer" fundraising for down ticket candidates in presidential election years.
He says that the $52500 dollar total cap on donations to all federal candidates is not fair to challengers in non battleground states, e.g. Bill Jones running against Boxer. Presidential candidates and candidates in battleground states get first dibs on ontributions. His "solution" is to make California a battleground state by apportioning California's 55!! electoral vote.
(Of course you could just change the amount to a larger amount, but that wouldn't acomplish his nefarious purpose.)
Of course since all the other states would still be winner take all it would mean even in a 60-40 blow out general election that an extra 22 or so electoral votes for any Republican. Enough to throw a close election to a Reoublican. This reeks the same way the California recall reeked and the Texas redistricting reeked. We should sound an alarm.
