One way to stimulate the economy

CA elections can reap rewards for some of the Golden state's top campaign firms and advisers.

This year looks like public affairs shops, individual consultants, advertising groups and others will reap significant gains. Millions will flow into CA organizations. And, just in time for a few.

While much of the focus has been on the governor's race, where candidates are employing multiple consultants, some of the real cash is on the propositions.

Take, for example, PG&E's spending on little known Prop. 16. The Capitol Weekly has a great report here.

And that is just for the June election. The November propositions, like the $11 million state water bond, are already on pace for record expenditures from the "for" and "against" teams.

Check back here for a tally, soon.
