CA39 (Fullerton): Mt. SAC trustee Jay Chen is out of the CA39 (Fullerton) race. This frankly sucks. The DCCC wants self-funder candidates and there are several there. Chen, the 2012 candidate, was strong then and probably is stronger now. But there are too many self-funders. The party is already giving up in several places. Too many self-funded candidates and too many locales.
After all, if there is something Democats are good at, it's giving away seats.
Donald Trump is here today for a "border wall" visit and one to the Beverly Hills fundraising ATM. A super-sexy first visit to California. BO did the same...not being political.
