    New in CW 06.29.06

    Been running all around the Capitol today, so sorry for the late start to posting. I've got three stories in Capitol Weekly today.

    Angelides, Schwarzenegger square off in cyberspace

    "Vote for Phil today," urged e-mails from gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides and the California Democratic Party last week. Although Angelides will not face Gov. Schwarzenegger for more than four months, his campaign urged supporters to help make the treasurer a 'Progressive Patriot' this week.

    The prize: a $5,000 campaign contribution from the political action committee of U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wisconsin, which sponsored the election among Democrats nationwide.

    Angelides won. But more important than the cash are the cyberspace rights, and the demonstration of grassroots strength. The exercise was one more example of the energy that Angelides and Schwarzenegger are putting into mobilizing the 'netroots,' as online supporters are now known.

    Prison guards give $22,300 to Angelides--but don't endorse him

    California's prison guards have given Democratic gubernatorial challenger Phil Angelides a maximum $22,300 donation, but representatives for the powerful union say the contribution does not constitute an endorsement.

    "While we continue to evaluate the direction we are going to take in the fall, we do recognize that candidates have to be able to reach out to the voting public and voice their vision for California," said Lance Corcoran, spokesman for the California Correctional Peace Officers Association (CCPOA).

    The union has not donated to Gov. Schwarzenegger's campaign.

    Cable joins telecom in backing overhaul of broadband regs

    California's powerful telephone and cable companies, bitter rivals who been at loggerheads for months, came together Tuesday for the first time to jointly support a revised proposal to carve up the state's multibillion-dollar broadband-Internet and video-services market.
