Voters go to the polls next Tuesday

  • Pelosi hands

KUNR's Paul Boger reached out Alexi Koseff - a political reporter with the Sacramento Bee - to break down next week's election. The candidates who are unopposed in seeking their party's nomination for two spots on November's ballot aren't facing their competition until fall's general election.

"You can't do it", he said.

For instance a voter might think, "Should I vote for a candidate I don't much like so that our party doesn't get shut out?"

California will hold a jungle primary on June 5th, but Democrats are concerned that the outcome could hurt their chances of winning back the House. The concept remains the same: the two candidates with the most number of votes in the primary move on to the general election in November, regardless of party affiliation.

When it became clear that the large Democratic field might splinter the vote - producing a Rohrabacher-Baugh race - several Democrats withdrew.

It also meant Republicans wouldn't have their own political problems having to defend "no" votes on Democratic amendments heading to November.

Sen. Don Davis of Greene County was the only Democrat voting for the measure, joining all Republicans. It marked the first time in at least 45 years that rank-and-file legislators were unable to offer amendments during the state budget process.

The question mark is whether this growing independent expenditure committee that is raising money to boost Antonio Villaraigosa will have an effect. It protects immigrants who came to the country as children and are now here illegally.

The pilfered password information was also hashed, essentially scrambling the characters into what appears to be random text. The company reassured customers that anyone who has access to the hashed passwords does not have the actual passwords.

That position puts him at odds with many in his party, including House conservatives and President Trump.

The "jungle primary" is also known as a top-two primary, qualifying primary, nonpartisan blanket primary.

Competing in the Republican primary are state Assemblyman Jay Webber of Morris Plains, John DeNeufville of Mendham Township, Patrick Allocco of Denville, Antony Ghee of Totowa and Martin Hewitt of Morristown. He's certainly has changed the conversation. But that doesn't sell on California's more liberal, independent and populous coast where voters want strong environmental protection and civil rights for gays and other minority groups. She's been in office for more than a quarter-century. Susan Becker knew what she was looking for. Right now, it's a lot more of a war of words then it really is a campaign battle. Another Democrat, pediatrician Mai Khanh Tran, is being backed by EMILY's List and has listed herself on the ballot as "Doctor/Mother/Teacher". Plus, he likes Knight's work on local issues.

"We skipped a couple steps for expediency", Woodhouse said. There's constantly new dynamics in play, especially in the changing demographics. However, the state has lurched left in recent decades, and Republicans are all but unelectable when it comes to races for governor and senator. The big prize there would be toppling Republican incumbent Dana Rohrabacher, who has represented the 48th Congressional District for 30 years.

With that said, Republicans are still unsure how to make sense of what is emanating from the Trump presidency. So, they are at this really hard crossroads right in California, trying to figure out their own future.

Cooper and fellow Democratic legislators have signaled opposition to the measure. "Or are you in favor of shaking the dice for another two years of unfettered control of the House, the Senate and the White House by a man who wants to ignore Russia's interference in our election; a man whose first thought every morning is, 'What's good for me, and can I get away with it?'; a man who shows no compunction about smearing any person or government institution that stands in his way; and a man who is backed by a party where the only members who'll call him out are those retiring or dying?" So things like this repeal of the gas tax that will likely be on the ballot in November, or trying to whip up fervor over the so-called sanctuary state law.

This year, however, Democrats are fielding so many candidates that it could actually lose them winnable House seats.
