Just a few quick items today as I get outside to farmers market and Sunday Mexican street food. I'm sure that the T Street offerings will never taste the same after my Mexico City trip!

Well, getting outside will depend on whether or not I can fix this flickering screen on my MacBook.

SD07 (Tri-Valley): The Keep California Golden Committee reports spending $138,812 for digital ads to support the reelection of Senator Steve Glazer (D). The committee is primarily funded by the California Association of Realtors and the State Building Trades. The committee is also up with $34,389 in radio ads supporting San Joaquin supervisor Kathy Miller (D) and $89,628 opposing Stockton councilmember Christina Fugazi (D) in AD13.,

SD37 (Irvine-Anaheim Hills-Newport Coast): In one of the most watched primaries that hasn't brought "independent" attention, a committee backed by Chevron, the California Dental Association, and Farmers Insurance is out with $49,014 for a mailer against Costa Mesa mayor Katrina Foley (D). Foley is wrestling with UC Irvine law professor Dave Min to be the Democrat to take on Senator John M.W. Moorlach (R) in a true toss up in November in the Democrats' second-highest priority for a pick up. That general election will be the true test to see if and where independent interests play.

WATER: For CalMatters, Dan Walters asks whether Governor Newsom has finally brokered peace over California's perennial water wars.

Cakeday and classifieds after the jump...
