California voters will narrow the race to replace termed-out Governor Jerry Brown from 27 candidates to two finalists today (Tuesday). As Capital Public Radio's Ben Adler reports, the biggest question is not who finishes first, but who comes in second.
With just days left until the June 5 primary election, it is no surprise to observers that the candidates running for governor of California are starting to get rough with one another in TV ads. And we're not talking about Democrats attacking Republicans. Capital Public Radio's Ben Adler and Chris Nichols have the following two reports showing how Democratic candidates are going after rival Democrats, and Republican candidates are attacking other GOPs in the race.
With less than two weeks until California's June 5 primary, the governor's race is all about who will come in SECOND. The top two primary finishers, regardless of political party, advance to the November general election. With frst place all but set, the candidates - and outside groups - are going all-in... either to make the race competitive in November or effectively end it next month.
