By the time the November 2 election was over, 9 different campaign committees had filed in opposition to Proposition 26.  Of the 9, only 3 were exclusively devoted to campaigning against Proposition 26.  The other 6 campaign committees all mentioned [[California Proposition 23 (2010)|Proposition 23]] in the list of propositions they were opposed to. Due to the nature of these combined committees, it is impossible to say with exactitude how much of the money that is contributed to a combination committee was spent on a specific proposition.  Proposition 23 attracted very significant opposition donations and it is likely that a majority of the money contributed to combined committees registered against both 23 and 26 was spent fighting Proposition 23, rather than Proposition 26, although this cannot be established with precision.

'''Through November 30, 2010,''' these donations of $75,000 or over went to any of the 9 campaign committees registered against Proposition 26.  Adding the total of these figures results in a higher total campaign contribution figure than was actually received by the total of the 9 committees because several of the committees made contributions to the other committees.

Opponents: By the time the November 2 election was over, 9 different campaign committees had filed in opposition to Proposition 26. Of the 9, only 3 were exclusively devoted to campaigning against Proposition 26. The other 6 campaign committees all mentioned Proposition 23 in the list of propositions they were opposed to. Due to the nature of these combined committees, it is impossible to say with exactitude how much of the money that is contributed to a combination committee was spent on a specific proposition. Proposition 23 attracted very significant opposition donations and it is likely that a majority of the money contributed to combined committees registered against both 23 and 26 was spent fighting Proposition 23, rather than Proposition 26, although this cannot be established with precision.

The names of the 9 campaign committees registered in opposition to Proposition 26 were:

Through November 30, 2010, these donations of $75,000 or over went to any of the 9 campaign committees registered against Proposition 26. Adding the total of these figures results in a higher total campaign contribution figure than was actually received by the total of the 9 committees because several of the committees made contributions to the other committees.

After adjusting for committees donating to other committees, Maplight records the total spent against Proposition 26 as of November 5, 2010 as $6,593,639.[1]
