Podcast: Endless Summer

Comments Off

You've just got to believe that the Democratic nominee for governor wishes the summer of 2010 would never end. After all, after being outspent by a gazillion-to-one, he appears headed into the fall campaign without having lost much ground -- if any -- in the race.

On this week's Capital Notes Podcast, we examine where things stand in the race for governor and conclude, when all is said and done, that you have to say Jerry Brown is the big winner of the summer contest... but maybe only because Meg Whitman didn't win it.

I'm joined by Capitol Weekly's Anthony York and Juliet Williams of The Associated Press in discussing the guv's race.

And then York and I turn our focus to the true endless summer saga: the state budget. Or lack thereof.
