Sorry, getting carried away–rather, it would end preferences in state agencies and universities. Another issue of the people vs. the powerful? Well, not quite. Those groups promoting the proposition have raised $1.4 million. Those supporting it have raised $4.6 million. This money came mainly from concerned academics?  Yes, groups such as the Law School Admissions Council, and The Association of American Medical Colleges donated large sums, but more than a third of their donations accrued from corporate sources, including Ford, Daimler-Chrysler, Pfizer, Aetna, JP Morgan, and Dow Chemical. Finally, a cause to bring together big Autos, pharmaceuticals, finance, and the American Association of University Professors.
