How does CBD help cancer?

 

E-19

Happy lunchtime, dear readers. I don't want to get partisan, but did a candidate on the debate stage last night refuse to say that he may or may not respect the decision of the voters on November 8? Where is Mitt Romney, John McCain, George HW Bush, and George Bush? Despite Bush v. Gore, I can't imagine any of them saying that they would "wait and see" about the election results.

Meanwhile, the Dodgers face the Cubs tonight in Chavez Revine at 5:08pm. Who comes up with these start times?

THE AG LIST: The list of possible candidates for attorney general:

  • Rob Bonta, Assemblymember
  • Mike Feuer, LA City Attorney
  • Dario Frommer, former assemblymember and my fellow UCD law grad
  • George Gascon, San Francisco DA
  • Mike Gatto, Assemblymember
  • Lorena Gonzalez, Assemblymember
  • Joshua Groban, UCLA law lecturer and senior advisor to Jerry Bown, covering legal and judiciary issues
  • 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
  • Nancy O'Malley, Alameda County DA
  • 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 of California

 

THE MAP: Nonpartisan analysts put Issa, Denham, Knight congressional races in toss-up category [Sean Cockerham @ SacBee] - "National political analysts are becoming increasingly convinced that congressional Republicans running for re-election in California are in danger." 

US SENATE: President Barack Obama stars in TV ad for Kamala Harris [Christopher Cadelago @ SacBee] - "President Barack Obama, whose summer endorsement of Kamala Harris dealt a stinging blow to U.S. Senate rival Loretta Sanchez, is appearing in a new statewide TV ad touting Harris’ accomplishments."

PROP 53: Money from Jerry Brown, others pours into anti-Prop. 53 effort [Jim Miller @ SacBee] - "The campaign against Proposition 53 has sharply picked up its fundraising in recent days, with Gov. Jerry Brown putting millions of dollars into the effort to defeat the Nov. 8 measure that would require a vote on state revenue bonds and potentially cripple the Brown-championed Delta water tunnel and bullet train projects."

MONEY MATTERS (IT REALLY DOES): The San Luis Obispo Republican Central Committee sent a $90,000 check to Marc Steinorth for his reelection bid in AD40 (Redlands).

PROP 61: Speaking of, Big Pharma kicked in $21 million yesterday in the campaign against the Proposition 61 limits on pharmeceutical prices. Most of the money went through the  Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America as an intermediary.

Meanwhile, Al Muratsuchi claimed a bag of money from the California Democratic Party -- $250,000 -- for his bid to reclaim AD66.

THE ABSENCE OF MONEY ALSO MATTERS: Why business groups aren't fighting California's tobacco and income tax hike initiatives [Liam Dillon @ LAT] - "Business leaders say their response to the Proposition 55 income tax extension and Proposition 56 tobacco tax increase has buoyed the chances of both measures passing. But they also contend that their positions say more about the specifics of the measures than any fraying of the traditional coalition between Republicans, taxpayer groups and business leaders against tax hikes."

HOLY S***: California promised public employees generous retirements. Will the courts give government a way out? [Maura Dolan @ LAT] - "In a potentially huge win for advocates of cutting government pensions, an appeals court in August declared that public retirement plans were not “immutable” and could be reduced. The three-judge panel said the law merely requires government to provide a “reasonable” pension."

CAP-AND-TRADE: Air board contemplates cap-and-trade’s future in Fresno meeting [Jeremy B. White @ SacBee] - "Who gets what when, in the popular formulation, works as shorthand for a lot of of political debates. It’s proving to be a critical dynamic as California debates the future of its centerpiece climate change program."

LA-LA LAND: A fix for L.A.'s homeless crisis isn't cheap. Will voters go for $1.2 billion in borrowing? [Doug Smith @ LAT] - "Proposition HHH on the November ballot asks voters to authorize $1.2 billion in borrowing over 10 years to jump-start the construction of 10,000 apartment units with on-site social and clinical services for thousands of chronically homeless people."

#CAKEDAY: Light those candles for Angela Alioto, Kamala Harris, Max Mikalonis, and Victoria Stewart!
