California Gov. Jerry Brown speaks during a news conference on May 14, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. Brown proposes $8.3 billion cuts in California to help close a projected $16 billion budget shortfall.
California’s Proposition 30 campaign released its fundraising numbers for the first half of the year on Tuesday. The campaign for Governor Jerry Brown’s tax initiative has raised more than $6 million so far.
The Proposition 30 campaign has collected almost $6.3 million and has more than $5 million cash on hand. The November ballot measure would raise income taxes on California's highest earners and raise the state sales tax a quarter of a cent.
Donors giving $100,000 or more include the California Faculty Association, California Association of Hospitals and Health Systems and a California School Employees Association political action committee.
In addition, Brown reported raising more than $800,000 so far this year for his 2014 re-election bid. He now has more than $6 million cash on hand.
The third-term governor has not yet said if he will run for re-election.
