TONIGHT:

#March for Truth: Restoring Faith in American Government is the theme of more than 135 peaceful demonstrations, marches, or rallies to be held across the nation this Saturday.  In lieu of a march, Sacramento is holding a flameless candlelight vigil at the California State Capitol South Steps at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 3.  Speakers include Tracie Stafford, Mayoral Candidate from Elk Grove and Jessica Morse, a national security strategist and 2018 Candidate for Congress (CA-04).

Co-sponsored by the Sacramento Indivisible Regional Action Network (SIRAN) the goals of these June 3events, including the Vigil, are to 1) demand that government leaders defend the rule of law, put country before party and vote to create an independent, bipartisan, impartial, outside commission to investigate fully foreign interference in the 2016 election; 2) Current Congressional investigations should be properly resourced and pursued free of partisanship; and 3) As much information as possible should be made available to the public as soon as possible.  The public wants the full truth about what happened in the 2016 election and its aftermath. Those found to have committed crimes must be held accountable, and a Commission can produce a series of recommendations to guide us in preventing any future attack on our electoral process.

You are encouraged to bring a flameless candle, blanket or camp chair. The Vigil will conclude by no later than 9:00 p.m.

How Popular Is The Governor With GOP Voters? :: Fox&hounds
foxandhoundsdaily.com
An interesting item in the poll is the reaction of voters characterized by ideology. If Brown were truly seen as a moderate his numbers should be strong with voters classified as moderates. However, moderate voters split on Brown. 46% approved of the job he is doing, 43% disapproved. It is the liberal voters that embrace Brown. 81% approve, 9% disapprove. The governor scores 19% approval with conservative voters.
