Good morning Team Nooner! Admittedly, it's 8:30 and I just woke up. I'm heading to the Sacramento Buddhist Church to get my dharma on at 9:30, so this will be a quickie Nooner. Anthony Weiner, get your mind out of the gutter.

Anyway, i'll catch up on news links tomorrow (hint: there is not much). Below you'll find the IE updates, some additional newspaper endorsements, and of course future Assemblywoman Monique Limón's #CAKEDAY!

THE AG LIST: There are three major factors: 1) the governor wants to appoint someone who will run and win in 2018; 2) the governor likely won't appoint a sitting legislator, which would reduce the majorities (and possible Senate supermajority) and trigger a costly special election; and, 3) the fact that both he and his father moved from AG to governor and that an appointee, if elected twice, would line up perfectly for the 2026 gubernatorial election. Thus, he wants someone who would he likes personally, and would govern in a manner he would like.

Here's the current list based on conversations with many insiders:

  • Rocky Delgadillo, former LA City Attorney
  • Katherine Feinstein, retired judge and daughter of Dianne Feinstein
  • Mike Feuer, LA City Attorney
  • Dario Frommer, former assemblymember and my fellow UCD law grad, who I later followed in his footsteps as president of the LSA
  • Leticia Perez, Kern County Supervisor and member, California Board of State and Community Corrections
  • Mike Gatto, Assemblymember (termed out)
  • 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. 
  • Nancy McFadden, executive secretary to Jerry Brown, and a key part of his inner circle
  • Nancy O'Malley, Alameda County DA
  • Jeff Rosen, Santa Clara County DA
  • Phillip A. Talbert, US attorney for the Eastern District of California

It's Rational To Be Ignorant About Plethora Of Initiatives - The Orange County Register
STEVEN GREENHUT @
ocregister.com
To make matters less clear, there’s a related — and wonderfully mischievous — measure called Proposition 65. The plastic-bag industry was annoyed that the grocery industry ultimately backed the bag ban. Under the final compromise, stores may not give away those light plastic bags, but they must charge for other types of bags. They keep the money. This initiative would redirect the estimated $300 million in proceeds from the stores to a state environmental fund — but only if voters approve Proposition 67.
