49. Angie Tate
Angie Tate is the chief financial officer of the California Democratic Party, and observers credited her with playing an important role in getting new funds into the organization, including raising money for the party’s newly-built headquarters in Sacramento. Tate intends to finish her gig when party chair John Burton, 83, steps down next year. His successor is not yet determined, but likely will be Eric Bauman (see No. 11). Tate and Burton go way back to his days as Senate leader, and Burton brought her over to the state party to work her magic as money manager. Which she did.
