  1. Senate race to decide Democrats' Capitol muscleRead the original story w/Photo

    23 hrs ago | Anaheim Hills News

    Senate District 34 is one of two Senate races expected to determine whether Democrats regain their two-thirds supermajority in the upper chamber, an advantage that allows them to raise taxes, put measures on the ballot, override gubernatorial vetoes and confirm gubernatorial nominees without a single GOP vote.

As Sacramento Bee columnist Dan Walters points out, only about three quarters of California's 18 million eligible voters "actually will be registered to vote, and it would be very surprising if 9 million will have cast ballots by the time voting closes on Nov. 4. In fact, it easily could be under 8 million."

  4. Schools chief race may be election's tightestRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday | The Wave

    The statewide election that could end up as one of the closest and most expensive in California this fall is for an office many voters probably have only the dimmest awareness of: state schools superintendent. With Democrats' current lock on Sacramento having removed much of the suspense from the governor's race and the other contests, two Democrats are engaged in an unexpectedly close fight for the nominally nonpartisan job of superintendent of public instruction.

  5. Editorial: Pick-and-choose tax breaks fail CaliforniaRead the original story

    Tuesday Oct 21 | The Wave

    Sacramento has yet to show any serious efforts at facilitating job creation.

    Tuesday Oct 7 | The Wave

    If it were a soap opera, it might be called "As the Senate Churns," spinning out twists and turns not even creative Hollywood writers might envision of the otherwise austere, respected upper house of the California Legislature.
