2nd Major Democrat Gives to Voters First

This weekend saw the birth of an unusual partnership for redistricting reform: Angelo Tsakopoulos, the longtime financier of Phil Angelides’s campaigns, donated $25,000 to the Governor’s Voters First initiative.

Tsakopoulos joins Reed Hastings as a major Democratic donor to the campaign. Angelides’ gubernatorial primary challenger Steve Westly is co-chair of the Voters First campaign, and Leon Panetta is a major endorser, though neither Westly nor Panetta are listed as donors to the campaign.

The Tsakopoulos donation adds a bit more of a bipartisan mix to the measure’s funding, which remains dominated by the Governor’s “Dream Team” ballot committee and members of the Republican New Majority organization.
