DISTRICT UPDATES

  • CA52 (San Diego): moved from Leans Democrat to Likely Democrat
  • SD39 (San Diego): moved from Likely Democrat to Safe Democrat
  • AD38 (Santa Clarita): moved from Leans Republican to Toss-Up

Happy Saturday! What a game last night between Cal and Oregon. Californians are flooding Nevada today on the state's first day of early voting. Monday is the last day to register to vote, so if you know anybody has moved recently, they need to re-register. The Secretary of State's office will be registering voters Monday between 11am and 5pm on the Capitol's north steps, and youwould-be voters can register online anytime before 11:59 Monday night.

The Internet seems to be okay this morning, although some worry that yesterday was a test run for a bigger attack on Election Day. Nobody has taken credit for the attack that left us Twitterless, Amazonless, and Netflixless for much of the day. Fortunately, it was a work day, and I'm guessing it'll go down as one of the most productive day of the year.

Cyberattacks wouldn't affect actual voting, as voting machines--even electronic ones--are not connected to the Internet. However, it could interfere with voters trying to get last-minute information on the issues or those trying to look up their polling place.

Yesterday was a big day for independent expenditures. They are listed after the classifieds.

Good information about the unemployment rate in the four-county Sacramento region (El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo) dropped to 5.2% in September from a revised 5.4% in August. That's very close to 5.0%, generally considered by economists to be full employment. 

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

Paul Mitchell is out with his absentee ballot return worksheet.

John Myers and Marisa Lagos are out with the latest California Politics Podcast.

LAW AND DISORDER: 'My reputation is destroyed': Former state Sen. Ron Calderon sentenced to 42 months in prison in corruption case [Patrick McGreevy and Joel Rubin @ LAT] - "Former state Sen. Ronald Calderon, once the most powerful member of a politically influential family, was sentenced Friday in Los Angeles to 42 months in prison after he pleaded guilty in a federal corruption case."

CA07 (East  Sacto County): The Sacramento Bee today endorsed Ami Bera (D) over Scott Jones (R) in the Toss-Up district. - "The Bee’s editorial board endorsed Jones when he ran for sheriff in 2010, and may endorse him in future races.

California Treasurer Who Shut Out Wells Fargo Eyes Top State Job [Alison Vekshin @ Bloomberg] - "The 54-year-old Democrat had used the power of his office to punish a financial institution before, but the political tenor was different when [John] Chiang made his Wells Fargo maneuver: He wants to be governor, the wonky hopeful in what’s expected to be a sizable field of potential successors to Jerry Brown."

Big money fuels both sides in Rep. Issa's reelection bid [Martin Wisckol @ OCR] - "Capital Hill Democrats have spent $670,000 on retired Marine Col. Doug Applegate’s challenge of Rep.
