Election Reaction: Winners and Losers
Wednesday, November 8, 2006
Statewide, yesterday was the final chapter in the successful remaking of Arnold Schwarzenegger. His rebounding popularity lead him to a landslide victory over Democrat Phil Angelides. And Californians approved ten of billions of dollars in bonding for everything from highways to flood control.
Locally, voters grounded Prop A, which would have called for a commercial airport at what’s now Miramar Air Station. Voters approved a slew of pricy school bonds and passed Jerry Sanders' government reform measures. And in Chula Vista, they threw out an incumbent mayor in favor of school board member Cheryl Cox.
