NPR Sacramento affiliate “Capitol Public Radio” quoted Sherry Bebitch Jeffe of the USC Price School on why California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s success in fundraising for his gubernatorial run does not guarantee electoral victory.
Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom has raised $16 million since he started campaigning for California governor two and a half years ago….USC Professor of Public Policy Sherry Bebitch Jeffe added that Newsom’s totals do not guarantee victory. “Money alone doesn’t win elections,” Jeffe said. “The message, the candidate, the candidate’s campaign organization are important, too.”
