THE NOONER for August 3, 2015
Happy Monday. I hope you had a great weekend. If you're like me, you were reviewing the campaign finance reports that were due Friday. There isn't much to be surprised, particularly near a year before the primary.
SUCCESSORS: I missed a few in Friday's list. Here's the updated list:
AURAL PLEASURE: The California Politics podcast is sans Anthony this week, but John and Marisa still do a great job tickling our ears.
SD25 (Pasadena): Michael Antonovich (R) filed, while finance reports were turn in by Make Gatto ($1.9 million), Katherine Perez-Estolano ($15k), Anthony Portantino ($933k), and Phlunte' Riddle ($92k).
YA'LL DIDN'T SEE THAT DOUGH: Smokin!
#CAKEDAY: Happy birthday to political consultant Phil Giarrizzo!
