This week's edition of the Capital Notes Podcast has us looking at several tidbits from the world of California politics... including the election of delegates to the Democratic National Convention and several nasty (or soon to be so) grudge matches headed to a ballot near you.
Capitol Weekly editor Anthony York and I do our best to dish on the Democrats headed to Denver, the recall campaign heating up in the Central Valley, a zinger of a campaign ad on a computer near you, initiatives headed to the November ballot, and some tough talk inside organized labor in California.
And a clarification since we recorded the p'cast earlier this morning: it was the year 2000 when Democrat Simon Salinas defeated Republican Jeff Denham for a seat in the Assembly... not, as we postulated, the other way around. Not enough coffee for us, it seems.
