REMINDER: My scott@scottlay.com email address is still in DNS hell. scottlay@gmail.com (where that other email usually goes anyway) is working just fine.

Happy Tuesday! Perfect weather today. The Black Lives Matter Sacramento protests continue today, again with a BBQ at the office of the District Attorney. They vow to continue until there are indictments in the officers involved in the Stephon Clark shooting. Instead of the usual 3-5pm event we've seen for the last sight weeks, they are calling for the protest to be from 1pm to 6pm

Regardless of where you stand on the protests, you have to admit that the persistance is impressive. When I organized rallies for community colleges, keeping people on the Capitol steps for an hour was a challenge before they wandered off. 

CONGRESSIONAL: The Cook Political Report moved CA39 (Royce/Open - Fullerton), CA48 (Rohrabacher - Huntington Beach) and CA49 (Issa/Open - Oceanside) to Toss-up. David Wasserman writes:

California's June 5 primary is the single highest-stakes primary of the year. With two weeks to go, Democrats are still at some risk of getting "locked out" by the top-two primary in several key districts, particularly the 39th, 48th and 49th CDs. Our newest ratings place all three of those seats in Toss Up, although it's possible those districts could shift back in Democrats' favor depending on the primary results.

In the daily tracking by Political Data/Paul Mirtchell, of the 11,515,218 vote by mail ballots, 654,987 have been returned. Of course, mine is still next to me on the couch as I write.

How Anti-abortion Forces Learned To Love Trump - Politico

The changes will likely face a court challenge, and critics say they threaten physicians' freedom to discuss reproductive health options and provide the best care to the low-income women who rely on the program for contraception, not abortion. But Trump's allies see them as evidence he's delivered on his campaign promises, said Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to the president who is close with the anti-abortion movement.
