LOS ANGELES (AP) - Gov. Jerry Brown hit the campaign trail in Los Angeles Monday in a last-minute push to convince voters to support his proposed tax increase.
The Democratic governor appeared in a Hispanic neighborhood in the city's San Fernando Valley Monday, where he urged activists to knock on voters' doors and make phone calls in support of Proposition 30.
Brown has a tough job. Recent polls show support for the plan to raise $6 billion a year is withering.
The governor's proposal would help close California's budget deficit by raising the state sales tax a quarter cent for four years and hiking income taxes for seven years on those making more than $250,000 annually.
He told the crowd the proposal is about the California dream.
