With a $500,000 campaign contribution reported today, Jerrold Perenchio has moved into second place on the list of individual contributors to the Yes on Proposition 32 campaign.
The former Univision chief gave the money on Thursday, according to a campaign disclosure report filed today. Perenchio has now given $750,000 directly to the campaign.
Only Charles Munger Jr. has given more to the campaign, $873,000, which is promoting a measure that aims to alter California campaign finance law by, among other things, banning payroll-deducted money for political purposes.
Despite Perenchio's latest campaign contribution, the big pro-Proposition 32 money has shifted to the Small Business Action Committee PAC, which received an $11 million contribution from an Arizona group, Americans for Responsible Leadership, earlier this week. The money can go to independent campaigning for Proposition 32 or against Proposition 30.
