CalWatchdog Morning Read – April 26

Senate candidates debate, EPA gets sued, affordable housing, another smoking ban, plus hot mic, “No Trump” signs and civil asset forfeiture abuse

Happy Tuesday!

Five candidates for U.S. Senate debated last night in an event that did little to Democratic Attorney General Kamala Harris’ standing as the frontrunner. She was joined by longtime Democratic member of Congress Loretta Sanchez, two former California Republican Party chairs, Tom Del Beccaro and George “Duf” Sundheim and Republican Ron Unz.

While Sanchez is the best-suited candidate to have an immediate impact in the Senate, with developed legislative skills and a seniority advantage, as CalWatchdog[1] reported last month, Harris is likely still the frontrunner, having the support of the Democratic Party[2]. 

As for last night, the Los Angeles Times[3] reports that Harris is “in (the) driver’s seat.” The San Bernardino County Sun/AP[4] reports the debate highlighted “style differences but not policy.” And The Orange County Register[5] reports Sanchez stood “her ground on Muslims comment.”
