Well, crap, Negan is back tonight.
What a day it was in Sandy Eggo yesterday. I skipped the trip. Heading to Oaxaca, MX in May and the city's legendary siete moles is better than a weekend of delegate pathology. Been there, done that.
This morning, we're all getting messages about "majorities" of endorsements by the California Democratic Party. Majorities don't do it...it takes 60%.
The following were on the agenda as part of the consent calendar:
Lieutenant Governor was a surprise. Many thought political upstart Eleni Kounalakis--daughter of prominent Sacramento developer Angelo Tsakapolous would grab the nomination. Nevertheless, while she got a majority, State Senator Ed Hernandez had enough support to keep Eleni below 60%. I don't have individual votes yet, but the speculation is that labor delegates went against Eleni.
Votes are "public," something that labor pushed for. Delegates are held to the party/organization line. I've always had mixed opinions about this, as organizations help elect delegates, but a vote should be a personal choice. Do you listen to an organization boss about Tony Mendoza or Cristina Garcia or vote your conscienc?. I think #METOO has something to say on this.
#CAKEDAY: Happy birthday to Paul Curtis and Mario Guerrero!

Oakland mayor warns that immigration raids may be coming this weekend
