DISTRICT UPDATES:

  • CA48 (Huntington Beach): corrected: Laura Oatman (Democratic) - Architect - on ballot but has dropped out and endorsed Rouda.
  • AD45 (West San Fernando Valley): updated analysis [available to Nooner Premium subscribers]

 

Well, happy Saturday to you. For the second day/evening in a row, the protests on the shooting of Stephon Clark continued last night and things seemed to have been a bit sketchier last night, reports the Bee. Today of course is the March for our Lives events across the country and in many foreign countries. Sacramento's event started at 10am in Crocker Park and participants are then marching to the West Steps of the Capitol for the rally. There will likely be a large presence there of Black Lives Matter activists.

LiteGov: The independent expenditure PAC sponsored by the California Medical Association in support of Eleni Kounalakis reports reciiving $2 million from Angelo Tsakopolous, Eleni's father. I've been told that he's willing to spend $10 milion on her effort.

SD32 (Whittier): Tony Mendoza posts "Why I'm running for re-election." Meanwhile, the Fair Political Practices Commission that told Mendoza that he could use campaign funds for legal defense in his harassment complaints has changed its mind, reports Patrick McGreevy in the Times.

On that note, the Secretary of State released the proof notice to candidates yesterday. Candidates have until next Thursday to challenge other candidates' ballot designation. While Mendoza filed as "State Senator," he is now listed as "No Ballot Designation."

Twenty-seven candidates qualified for the ballot for governor and 32 qualified for United States Senate.

Upward Mobility at Cal State LA

 

This story is awesome and shows that the Kings organization is now under much better leadership:

Near the end of a dramatic and angry protest that forced Golden 1 Center arena to go on emergency lockdown for hours Thursday night, demonstration organizer Barry Accius got a surprise and slightly unnerving invitation.

A King's representative approached him in the plaza outside as the crowd dispersed, saying team co-owner Vivek Ranadive, former player Doug Christie and others wanted to talk to him.

Inside.

Accius said he first thought he was going to end up "in handcuffs." He had just helped organize a sustained demonstration that had disrupted an NBA basketball game, blocking more than 10,000 fans from getting inside and costing the team untold money in tickets refunds and lost sales.

But instead of being arrested, Accius said, he was greeted by a hug from Christie, an NBC commentator, who thanked him for delivering a powerful message. Players Vince Carter and Garrett Temple offered their support as well.
