Happy Sunday. Yesterday, a coronavirus patient in Washington died as did the presidential dreams of Tom Steyer, the last Californian in the race. We once had Swalwell, Kamala, and Steyer, but now we have none. Yes, Marianne Williamson used to live in the mighty CA33 and ran against Rep. Ted Lieu, but she moved to another planet.

PRESIDENTIAL: In California, we expect it to break 3:2 for Sanders:Biden and the only ones to qualify for delegats AT THE STATE LEVEL. Latinos are breaking for Sanders and Biden continues to have support from the Obama-Biden coalition. There was a Twitter conversation on this earlier today. I don't have the answers. Older African-Americans in particular stand behind Biden, as evidenced by SC congressional dean Jim Clyburn. Latinos generally appear to be solidly in the Sanders camp, looking for progressive solutions to housing and health care.

We're just getting started...

AD05 (Foothills): What the hell is going on in AD05? The money flowing there is big and Assembly member Frank Bigelow (R) is uncontested in a safe GOP district. There are no certified write-in candidates (20-40 signatures and no filing fees).
