Der Arnold Wins Big

Results on ballot initiatives here in the Golden State? Both the initiatives Gov. Arnold backed won–and won very big. Proposition 57, which will permit the Governor to borrow $15 billion to pay off the debt his predecessor accumulated, carried by 63 to 37 percent, while Proposition 58, which will require the state to work a little harder to balance the budget each year (alas and alack, the proposition lacks teeth), carried by 69 to 31 percent.

Gov. Arnold rolls on.
