But La Russa's parting with his new fellow travelers on at least one issue that's long been dear to his heart: animals.

The Prop B campaign has received major support from the Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCA, and some wealthy coastal donors.

The opposition, while significantly lagging in funding, has received endorsements from nearly a dozen Republican state representatives. They say Prop B would put good breeders out of business and that more enforcement, not more regulations, are needed.
