Proposition 30's backers and critics rally supporters in final week

October 30, 2012 | 11:00 am

With polls showing California voters could go either way on Proposition 30, the campaigns for and against the measure are sending powerful surrogates to rally for their respective causes Tuesday. 

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Bakersfield) will join business and tax-fighter groups at a Bakersfield rally against the measure. 

Meanwhile, Gov. Jerry Brown, the architect of the temporary sales and upper-income tax increase, will rally students at Cal State Los Angeles. 

Brown continues to make younger voters a primary target for his campaign in the closing days. He spoke to students at UC Santa Cruz on Friday and held a rally on the campus of Cal State Chico on Monday. 

Brown will be campaigning in Southern California on Tuesday and Wednesday. He will give a speech to the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on Thursday before returning to Los Angeles this weekend.
