DISTRICT UPDATES:  

  • AD76 (Carlsbad): removed compliance/ethics consultant Michelle Gomez (D) - running for SD Board of Supes instead   

AURAL PLEASURE: On this week's California Politics Podcast, John Myers and Melanie Mason talk about this week's drama of the United States against the Bear Flag Republic. 

Well, the first filing deadline has passed and the next (no incumbent) is Wednesday at 5pm. Not all counties have or have updated their online candidate logs. And as I wrote yesterday, remember that lots of districts are in multiple counties. The candidate files in the county where they are registered to vote. Not until March 29 will we have a true statewide list. 

Fifty-eight counties with no standardized format for candidate logs and consistency in posting...ugh.

An interesting thing that affects the same geography. Because Tony Mendoza quit SD32 (and is running anew), it's an open seat and filing is open until Wednesday. However, Cristina Garcia is on an "unpaid leave of absence," so the filing for AD58 closed last night. 

In AD58, nine candidates completed filing, including Garcia. (This doesn't mean qualified for the ballot for certain.)

Mendoza's filing thus far with Los Angeles County still says "State Senator," which is totally not legal. Garcia is "Math Teacher/Assemblymember" because "Math Teacher/Stay-at-Home-Assemblymember" was too long. Actually, it would be compliant. I jest...

SD28 (Coachella Valley): While Riverside County hasn't updated its candidate filing log after last night's deadline, State Senator Jeff Stone (R) posted to Facebook that he indeed filed for re-election. There was a lot of back-and-forth, but leadership already facing another supermajority in the State Senate really didn't want an open seat. It's a safe seat in a mid-term, but it would still suck resources.

Upward Mobility at Cal State LA

 

GOV: For CALmatters, Ben Christopher gets a sit-down with gubernatorial candidate Delaine Eastin (D), who brings up the "PP" word. No, not that PP word--but public pensions.

I'm going to be short today. Some Capitol folks will tell you that I've been working all morning at Vallejo's (the original one of course), but I've been going through county reports more than novel writing. I'll have more tomorrow, which I'll be writing this afternoon. I hope to make it to my routine of Buddhist church and farmers' market tomorrow morning, but can any of us deny the allure of the morning shows tomorrow after the news of the last few days?

I think a Stormy is in the forecast. I don't want to get partisan, but a Rick Santorum defense has to bring a chuckle in advance. I think Newt and Wiener are on vacation. 

 

Probolsky Research

 

 

Thanks for your patience today. My interns/hamsters all called in sick and the squirrels outside aren't up to speed yet and I have 730 candidates in 58 counties to weed through. The squirrels are smart, but are really bad at typing. The raccoons are quite dexterous--they lift drainage lids in the courtyard--but only work when I'm sleeping.

#CAKEDAY: Happy birthday to Jeff Koertzen!
