E-48

Happy humpday. Yes was real live rain briefly in SacTown this morning! Michelle Obama was great on Stephen Colbert last night. Yesterday, I had a great time talking elections with team at PPIC yesterday.

US SENATE: Kamala Harris expands lead over Loretta Sanchez for U.S. Senate [Christopher Cadelago @ SacBee] - “Harris, the state attorney general, has opened a 22-point lead among likely voters, 42 percent to 20 percent, according to the survey by The Field Poll and the Institute of Governmental Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. She led by roughly 15 points in Field Polls taken in July and late May.”

Field Poll: Latinos shifting to Harris over Sanchez [Matthew Artz @ MercNews] - “California Attorney General Kamala Harris has made major inroads with Latino voters to help widen her lead over Rep. Loretta Sanchez in California’s first all-Democratic U.S. Senate race, a new poll suggests.”

Polling memo

This sets up Kamala Harris to raise a huge warchest before a very likely US Senatship. That would put her in the instant leadership category. Chuck Schumer is playing hard to win Democratic Senate seats in hopes of becoming Senate Majority Leader, currently a 50-50 proposition. The caucus would love to have Harris--a multi-racial citizen of African-American and Indo-American backgrounds--in a leadership role.

THE SCARE: Warning of active shooter roils California Capitol before threat dismissed [Jeremy B. White @ SacBee] - “The California Highway Patrol investigated an active safety threat at the Capitol on Tuesday, prompting alarm and confusion before officials said the threat had passed.”

PROP 59: California's Citizens United proposition started with a chat at Starbucks [Sarah D. Wire @ LAT] - “When she sat down at a Starbucks in Torrance a few years ago, Michele Sutter was desperately looking for a California legislator to sponsor a bill regarded by many as a nonstarter — a proposition instructing the state’s congressional delegation to change the U.S. Constitution.”

The May Building

 

BACKLASH: Six Democrats lose LGBT support after a vote in final hours of Legislature [Patrick McGreevy @ LAT] - “Equality California supported SB 1146, which requires religious universities to disclose whether they have applied for an exemption to federal discrimination laws that conflict with religious tenets. The schools would also have to report to the state when they expel a student on grounds that they are in a same-sex relationship or because they are transgender.”

$$$: California voters will decide hundreds of tax and bond measures [Dan Walters @ SacBee] - “We Californians cough up about $250 billion in state and local taxes each year, one of the nation’s highest tax burdens at 12-plus percent of our personal incomes. Nevertheless, it will get a bit heavier if the state’s voters embrace the hundreds of state and local tax measures on their Nov. 8 ballots.

Local gov finance Michael Coleman has a list.

SACTOWN: Midtown Sacramento Whole Foods project to break ground [Richard Chang @ SacBee] - “The two-phase project consists of a parking structure at 21st Street and Capitol Avenue, along with a six-story building near 21st and L streets that would house a Whole Foods Market and 97 apartment units. It is likely among the largest residential developments to be built in the central city in nearly a decade.”

#CAKEDAY: Happy birthday to political consultant Brian Brokaw, former Assemblyman John Longville, and Assemblyman Devin Mathis!
