Here's why the Legislature's moderate Democrats see the 'Mod Squad' growing on election day [Christine Mai-Duc @ LAT]:

Some of top candidates business groups have invested in are:

Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, mayor of the rural community of Winters, who owns a walnut farm and is up against a Republican in a safe Democratic seat;
Madison Nguyen, a former San Jose City Council member who backed public employee pension reform;
Timothy Grayson, a Concord city councilman and former Republican who is a member of the local Chamber of Commerce;
Raul Bocanegra, who is locked in a battle to regain the seat he lost in 2014 to Patty Lopez;
and Assemblywoman Cheryl Brown (D-San Bernardino), who is facing a major progressive challenger in Eloise Gomez Reyes.

 

US SENATE: Kamala Harris far ahead of Loretta Sanchez for U.S. Senate [Christopher Cadelago @ SacBee] - Kamala "Harris is far out ahead of Rep. [Loretta] Sanchez, a 10-term congresswoman from Orange, 47 to 23 percent, among likely voters. Some 17 percent remain undecided, and another 13 percent volunteered that they plan to sit out the contest between two members of the same party. Among those who have already voted, 55 percent chose Harris, 26 percent backed Sanchez and 14 percent said neither." 

LAW AND DISORDER: California ethics watchdog proposes $57,000 fine against Sen. Tony Mendoza [Taryn Luna @ SacBee] - "The state political ethics watchdog has proposed a $57,000 fine against Sen. Tony Mendoza and others over allegations they broke campaign-finance laws to keep money out of the hands of the Calderon family in Mendoza’s final days as chairman of the California Latino Legislative Caucus."

BALLOT BLOAT: Why Californians have to vote on 17 ballot measures [Jeremy B. White @ SacBee] - "The ballot surge partially reflects a lower bar to qualify. The number of signatures required to get on the ballot is a percentage of votes cast for governor in the 2014 election, which produced record-low turnout rates and thus slashed the requisite number of signatures."

THE OC: On Tuesday, Orange County could vote Democratic for first time since 1936 [Martin Wisckol @ OCR] - "Tuesday could be the first election in 80 years that Orange County favors the Democratic presidential candidate, thanks to Democrats closing a registration gap with Republicans and voter wariness of the GOP nominee."

CA50 (East SD County): Hunter took out home loan for $49,000 campaign repayment [Morgan Cook @ SDUT] - "Congressman Duncan Hunter, R-Alpine, took out a third loan on his home to repay nearly $49,000 to his campaign account after months of scrutiny surrounding what appeared to be personal spending."

MONEY MATTERS: September setback: California exports fall after a robust August [Mark Glover @ SacBee] - "California businesses shipped merchandise valued at $13.65 billion in September, down nearly 3.5 percent from $14.13 billion in September 2015, according to Friday’s report by Beacon Economics, a consulting firm with offices in the Bay Area and Los Angeles."

Gov. Brown says â
sfgate.com
Many dog-loving Californians worried alongside Gov. Jerry Brown when news broke in mid-October that his beloved pooch, Sutter, had fallen critically ill from cancer. “He was in a dog park and he was chasing and barking all the dogs away,” Brown told The Chronicle at an unrelated news conference in San Francisco to oppose Proposition 53, the ballot measure requiring voter approval for state projects using revenue bond measures larger than $2 billion. Sutter was rushed to a local animal hospital in Sacramento for emergency surgery on Oct. 7 after becoming ill. Veterinarians discovered during surgery that Sutter had a number of cancerous masses in his intestines, lymph nodes and liver.
