DISTRICT UPDATES:

  • CA49 (Carlsbad): moved from Leans Republican to Toss-up 

SUTTER UPDATE: Sutter Brown health update brings bad news [Jeremy B. White] - "News that Sutter had fallen critically ill rocked the world of California politics earlier this week, prompting a flood of well-wishing for the stricken pooch. Now biopsy results are in, and the news is grim: Sutter has “very aggressive cancer,” which the vets were not able to entirely remove, Brown spokesman Evan Westrup said in an email."

The list of possible candidates for attorney general has increased:

  • Mike Feuer, LA City Attorney
  • Dario Frommer, former assemblymember and a fellow UCD law grad
  • George Gascon, San Francisco DA
  • Joshua Groban, UCLA law lecturer and senior advisor to Jerry Bown, covering legal and judiciary issues
  • Anne Gust Brown, lawyer and wife of Jerry Brown
  • Bob Hertzberg, member of the senate, well respected on both sides
  • Dave Jones, insurance commissioner
  • Clark Kelso, professor of law at McGeorge and a Republican nominee appointed to insurance commish in 2000 when the vacancy arose after Chuck Quackenbush was compelled to resign and moved to serve as the state's chief information officer under both Davis and Schwarenegger. Easy confirmation. 
  • Jackie Lacey, Los Angeles DA
  • Nancy McFadden, executive secretary to Jerry Brown, and a key part of his inner circle
  • Bill Monning, State Senator
  • Jeff Rosen, Santa Clara County DA
  • Adam Schiff, member of Congress and a former prosecutor. Generally lliked by both sides in DC, which is a feat.
  • Phillip A. Talbert, US attorney for the Eastern District California

MONEY MATTERS: The Democratic Party showered Assembly challengers with dough yesterday:

  • AD35 (San Luis Obispo): Dawn Ortiz-Legg - $100,000
  • AD40 (Redlands): Abigail Medina - $25,000
  • AD65 (Fullerton): Sharon Quirk-Silva - $150,000
  • AD66 (Torrance): Al Muratsuchi - $200,000

In addition, each of these candidates had several in-kind expenditures by the party. Also beneficiaries of in-kind were Cheryl Cook Kallio (AD16) and Christy Smith (AD38).

That list--all in districts held by Republicans--showcases the landscape that Dems are focusing on to gain at least one seat for an Assembly supermajority of 54 seats. The Democratic Party is vastly outspending the Republican Party in these races.

US SENATE: California Senate candidates Loretta Sanchez and Kamala Harris on policy, politics and the state of their race [Sarah D. Wire @ LAT] - "The Times invited U.S. Senate candidates California Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris and Rep. Loretta Sanchez to answer questions that might help readers get a better sense of the race." 

THE TRUMP FACTOR: Thanks to Trump, Democrats may see gains in once-safe GOP districts in California [Sean Cockerham @ SacBee] - "Republican candidates are terrified that Republican voters won’t show up at the polls because they don’t want to vote for either Trump or Hillary Clinton, he said. That’s especially a danger in California, where the U.S. Senate race is between two Democrats, so there’s nothing at the top of the ticket to draw Republicans out to vote other than the presidential race."

CA25 (Santa Clarita): Did Steve Knight say he'll vote for Donald Trump? Not quite. [Sarah D. Wire @ LAT] - "The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee came out swinging against Rep. Steve Knight on Friday morning, saying the Republican congressman announced during a debate Thursday evening that he would support GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. That isn't what happened."

SD23 (Riverside): Mike Morrell, Ron O'Donnell again battle in 23rd state Senate District [Beau Yarbrough @ PE] - "Morrell defeated O’Donnell and two other candidates in a special election in March 2014 for the seat, which was vacated by Bill Emmerson. After that loss, O’Donnell, an anti-foreclosure crusader, vowed he would challenge Morrell again."

AD43 (Glendale): State Assembly candidates Friedman, Kassakhian square off during forum at City Hall [Jeff Linda @ Glendale News Press] - "Candidates for the 43rd state Assembly district presented many shared solutions to the district's problems and often diverged on accountability during a candidate forum on Thursday."

YOU'RE HIRED! We asked SGV state Assembly candidates our best job interview questions. Here are their answers. [Stephanie K. Baer @ SGV Tribune] - "In an attempt to learn something you can’t find on their websites or in campaign mailers, we asked local state Assembly candidates in the Nov. 8 election four of our best non-political job interview questions."

PROP 52: Ad by hospital fee proponents is truthful [Jim Miller @ SacBee] - "Proposition 52 reflects the hospital industry’s attempt – like those undertaken by school officials, local government leaders and others before them – to lock down its piece of the state budget from the hospital quality assurance fee. The ad is essentially true but leaves the impression that lawmakers are salivating to divert the money generated by the fee to other purposes unless voters act to guarantee it." 

PROP 61: Bernie Sanders urges supporters to ‘stand up to’ Big Pharma at Prop 61 rally [Susan Abram @ LADN] - "Former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders stopped in Los Angeles Friday to call on his supporters to get behind a California ballot initiative that proposes a way to decrease prescription drug costs in the Golden State."

PROP 62: Why Silicon Valley is pouring money into efforts to repeal California's death penalty [Jazmine Ulloa @ LAT] - "As voters weigh two dueling death penalty measures on the Nov. 8 ballot, Silicon Valley entrepreneurs are pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into the effort to end executions in California, saying they want to see the practice abolished both in the state and across the U.S."

PROP 67: Is California ready to toss single-use plastic bags? [Kristin J. Bender @ AP] - "California voters are considering a November referendum that would uphold or overturn a statewide ban on single-use plastic carryout bags, and another ballot initiative that would require fees collected from retail customers for alternative bags be put in an environmental fund."

CH-CH-CH-CHANGES: Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom tells business leaders about drastic changes to economy [Jeff Horseman @ PE] - "California’s education system must adjust to a globalized economy that increasingly uses automation to replace workers, Lt. Gavin Newsom said Friday, Oct. 14, in Riverside."

MOVIN' ON UP: Ken Cooley vows to be ‘particularly energetic’ in new Assembly post [Jeremy B. White @ SacBee] - "He has been tapped by Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon to lead the Assembly Rules Committee. He replaces outgoing Assemblyman Richard Gordon, D-Menlo Park, who was pushed aside by term limits."

BOE: Ousted in March, but tax board’s leader never missed a paycheck [Adam Ashton @ SacBee] - "In losing her job last spring, former Board of Equalization executive Cynthia Bridges ultimately traded five bosses for one. Board member Jerome Horton this month hired her as a special consultant, keeping her on his payroll seven months after the tax board voted to remove her as its executive director amid a critical audit about the board’s efficiency and management. Bridges now earns about $9,800 a month providing tax advice to Horton and his constituents, according to her contract."

Schaaf: Letâ
sfgate.com
[...] the mayor also acknowledged the housing crisis and income disparities that plague Oakland, and the sexual misconduct scandal that rattled its police department in recent months, thrusting the city — and Schaaf — into the national spotlight. Despite the tense timing of the speech, which came weeks before a contentious November election, and the same day that the Nevada Legislature approved funding for a new Raiders stadium in Las Vegas, Schaaf was upbeat. “A moon shot is a big, audacious goal; it’s less about incremental improvement and more about transformational change,” said Schaaf, who opened her speech with a video clip of John F. Kennedy’s 1962 “We Choose to Go to the Moon” speech at Rice University. In January, she started a citywide effort to triple the number of Oakland public school students who graduate from college, mostly through grants and scholarships. [...] in June, shortly after news of the Oakland police misconduct scandal had engulfed City Hall, Schaaf presented a 13-month study by Stanford University social psychologist Jennifer Eberhardt that demonstrated racial bias in Oakland police traffic stops. [...] she also took a jab at antipolice activists who recently launched a mayoral recall campaign, asking voters to oust Schaaf and strip the police department of half its funding.
