Nearly 200 people gathered at a mid-morning rally in Sherman Oaks on Wednesday to boost H. Ross Perot for President.
The Texas billionaire's nationwide bid for the presidency was compared to the campaign that carried Prop. 13 in California in 1978. Perot has said he will run if volunteers get his name on the ballot in all 50 states.
"We need a change. And if this guy is elected, it might change the whole way candidates are selected, a kind of revolution," said Jon Glabman, 26, an insurance agent from Encino.
Organizers of the first street rally for Perot in California said they have signed up more than 3,500 volunteers to work at collecting the 135,000 registered voters' signatures needed to qualify Perot for the California ballot.
