CalWatchdog Morning Read – November 22

by CalWatchdog Staff | November 22, 2016 8:27 am

Good morning. Happy Tuesday, also known informally around the CalWatchdog newsroom as “Almost Thanksgiving.” We have a bit of breaking news this morning: Democrats appear to have achieved a supermajority in the state Legislature.

The linchpin is one Southern California Senate district, where Republican Assemblywoman Ling Ling Chang had held a narrow lead over Democrat Josh Newman in the race to replace the former Senate Minority Leader Bob Huff, who is termed out. 

But Chang’s lead dwindled daily. On Monday it was less than 200 votes. This morning she trails Newman by more than 800 votes.

We wrote about[1] the importance of this race yesterday.
