DISTRICT UPDATES:

  • CA48 (Huntington Beach): removed architect Laura Oatman (D) - she's endorsing Harley Rouda 
  • AD13 (Stockton): added Hispanic chamber president Carlos Villapudua (D)

Happy Friday! You made it!

GOV: Last night, Politico's David Siders sat down with  John Chiang at the University of San Francisco as part of the series of interviews they are doing with candidates.

JOHN CHIANG’S MOMENT -- Just a day after Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Chiang emerged at the back of the Democratic gubernatorial pack in the latest PPIC poll, the state treasurer shrugged off his 6 percent showing. “We’re surging, we’re making good progress,’’ he told POLITICO’s David Siders. “We have a good strong base.”

US SENATE: Politico's David Siders profiles Kevin de León.

CAGOP: Javier Panzar writes in the Times about the first meeting of former Assembly Republican Leader Chad Mayes's group seeking to reshape the California Republican Party.

A gymnasium in East Los Angeles is an odd setting for a Republican summit, but it offered the kind of symbolism former Assembly Republican leader Chad Mayes is seeking these days: For the GOP to stay relevant in California, it has to try something new.

So somewhere new is where Mayes, former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Ohio Gov. John Kasich found themselves Wednesday at the first meeting of Mayes' centrist advocacy group New Way California. He started it after he stepped down as the leader of his Assembly caucus last summer amid criticism for helping Democrats renew California's landmark climate program.

FPPC: In the Times, Patrick McGreevy reports on the power struggle at the Fair Political Practices Commission, where part-time commissioners want more say over policy and organization issues. The chair is full-time and has an oversized role, some say.

#METOO: The LAT's Jazime Ulloa writes about a new group seeking to promote progressive women candidates in light of the #MeToo movement, particularly in the districts where legislators resigned over harassment complaints. The group is called I Fund Her and formally launched yesterday.

New Senate President Pro Tem Toni Atkins  used her speech after being sworn in to pledge that changes will come to the Senate following the harassment situation, John Myers reports in the Times.

COPS: For the Bee, Alexei Koseff looks at why there has been little legislative activity in response to the Black Lives Matter movement. This follows yesterday's protest following the Sunday night's shooting of a young black man carrying only a cell phone in South Sacramento, shot twenty times in his grandparents' backyard. Protestors shut down I-5 during rush hour and blocked entrance to last night's Kings game.
