Please be prepared to explain and analyze the “building blocks”, or the success, of the 2003 recall campaign against Gray Davis. Specifically, explain the financing factors involved in making the campaign successful, both in terms of the petition signature campaign and the recall campaign itself once the election was approved for the ballot. Secondly, be able to describe and explain the factors that made Gray Davis an unpopular figure from 2001 through 2003. Finally, describe the voter demographics that supported both the recall and the candidacy of Arnold Schwarzenegger, enabling these two campaigns to be victorious. Be ready to analyze and explain 1990’s Proposition 140. Specifically, what were the features of Proposition 140? Describe and explain the intent and advantages of the proposition. Then describe and explain the potential dangers and disadvantages of this ballot initiative.

Also, please discuss (from the Gerston reading), the recent updated reforms to the term limits law, approved by California voters. Be prepared to discuss and explain the various types of primary elections in California. How have some of these types of primaries (specifically, the modifed closed from 2002-2010) been a partial factor in the recent past (and potentially future) problems of budget deficits, taxes and spending from the Ca state budget? Be specific and detailed in listing the problems and obstacles, and how the closed primary might have played a part. In addition to the modified closed primary, also be prepared to discuss other factors - economic/fiscal, state constitutional and electoral factors (all discussed during class sessions) - that led to gridlock and the inability to produce stable, on-time state budgets during most of the 2000's. Also, as part of this potential broad essay question, be prepared to discuss the current modified blanket primary, and why many believe it could solve governing problems within the state legislature. Please describe and explain, in detail, the formal process of how a bill becomes a law in the California state legislature. In your answer, be very mindful of the functions of the committee process – the Rules committees, the committees dealing with bills, and conference committees. Define what these types of committees are. Overall, give a complete explanation of the process. Please provide a history of the tenure of any three of the following four California governors: Ronald Reagan, Jerry Brown (notably his first stint in office from 1975-1983), George Deukmejian, Pete Wilson and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Specifically, identify and explain significant “highlights” and achievements of the three selected governors. Also, identify infamous (controversial, difficult) events that plagued the three selected governors. Draw from both lecture notes and Gerston, chapter 7 (use Gerston especially for Schwarzenegger). Please explain and describe in detail three significant and famous citizen ballot initiatives (propositions) in recent California history – except for Propositions 140 and 198.
