Sacramento-based education reform advocacy nonprofit StudentsFirst spent 42 percent of its $3.7 million spending in support of Democratic candidates in the 2012 campaign cycle, according to documents obtained by LA School Report editor Alexander Russo — but in California that figure was 100 percent:
In California, the organization funded three Democratic candidates (Brian Johnson, Cheryl Brown, and Ian Calderon) in 2012. Two out of the three won their races, a 66 percent win rate, compared to 84 percent across 14 states where the organization played a role.
