Question of the Day
Officials oppose birthright change
The Obama administration says it’s wrong to try to change the constitutional amendment that grants automatic citizenship to babies born in the United States.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said she is surprised that Republican congressional leaders are joining a push to reconsider the 14th Amendment instead of working with Democrats on comprehensive immigration reform. Miss Napolitano said that’s “just wrong.”
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has said he supports holding hearings to reconsider the citizenship rights of illegal immigrants’ babies born in the U.S. But he emphasized that Washington should remain focused on border security.
Whitman adds big cash to campaign
SACRAMENTO | Billionaire Republican Meg Whitman has given her campaign for California governor another $13 million, bringing her total contribution from her personal fortune to $104 million.
The former eBay chief executive had spent nearly $100 million on her primary and general election contests through the end of June, making it the most expensive campaign in California history.
Her Democratic rival, state Attorney General Jerry Brown, has spent just $774,000, including donated services, although union-backed groups have spent nearly $6 million on ads supporting him. The latest is scheduled to begin airing Monday.
Public opinion polls show the two in a dead heat, with nearly a quarter of voters still undecided.
Word of Mrs. Whitman’s most recent contribution came in a filing late Friday with the secretary of state’s office.
