California tribes will contribute as much as $10 million to support Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante (D) in the upcoming recall election, The Washington Post reports.

According to the paper, spending on the race could exceed $50 million. Tribes will be a major player in the campaign, a source said.

Bustamante has been popular with tribal leaders. He has not always agreed Gov. Gray Davis' (D) stance on tribal issues.

The recall will take place October 7.
