Ugh, that summer cold that's going around hit me like a ton of bricks yesterday, causing me to cancel my trip to Idaho for my cousin's wedding. In addition to missing out on seeing family and witnessing my cousin's wedding, I was looking forward to seeing Coeur d'Alene, ID. Looks absolutely beautiful.

Well, apparently, Sacramento may be getting both Panda and O.J. Simpson.

SCHOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER: Summer recess starts at the end of session today, with lawmakers returning August 21 for the final three weeks of this year's legislative session.

GOV: Well, that was fast. Former Assemblymember David Hadley dropped out of the race for governor, only two weeks after jumping in. Seema Mehta reports for the Times about Hadley's email to supporters announcing his decision. “No matter how much preparation you put in, there are certain things you cannot learn until you step into the arena,” he wrote. “What I have learned since I announced my candidacy has led me to conclude that I cannot responsibly ask donors, endorsers, volunteers, supporters or my family to invest in this campaign right now… We would not have the time and resources to make the case we need to make to all California voters.”

In the Times, Phil Willon sits down with gubernatorial candidate and former Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin for a Q&A.

In the Bee, Christopher Cadelago and Taryn Luna ask whether there will be electoral consequences to Democrats for the progressive agenda supported by Governor Brown this year. "As the victories mount, however, so do questions about whether the termed-out governor is putting Democrats representing marginal districts in a difficult spot come next year’s elections."

Environmentalist and Democratic activist Tom Steyer's group has rebranded itself from NextGen Climate to NextGen America as it seeks to focus more broadly to take on the Donald Trump agenda. It's seeming less likely that Steyer will run for governor next year and instead enjoy his bully pulpit role against the President.

#CAKEDAY: Happy birthday to David Ruff!
