LOS ANGELES (AP) — In stories published Nov. 8-9, 2022, about two California ballot initiatives to legalize sports betting, The Associated Press, relying on figures recorded by the secretary of state’s office, erroneously reported that nearly $600 million had been raised in the most expensive ballot initiative campaign in U.S. history. That total included $128 million raised by a committee to support one measure and oppose the other, which resulted in the figure being counted twice. Accounting for that, the combined amount for both questions was about $460 million, still an all-time high, with final contributions being tallied.
