Podcast: The Political Lull

Comments (1)

It seems to feel lately as though we're in between some big storms rumbling through the state political landscape in 2012 -- hence, the title of this week's Capital Notes Podcast.

Our brief -- and aurally challenged -- chat features a look at why three (or four) separate tax initiatives all now seem full steam ahead for the November ballot, and how some big legislative and congressional candidate decisions will be made in the next few weeks.

Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and Marisa Lagos of the San Francisco Chronicle both sound fine in this short chat; your friendly radio reporter host had a non-functioning microphone and so apologies for the marginal quality every time I open my mouth to speak... (yes, insert your own joke here).

    I was in the middle of my lunch when I heard the words “Santorum landslide.” Thanks, Anthony!
