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

    Oct 24, 2014 | 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. Democrats have had a supermajority intermittently over the past two years and have not raised taxes, but Nguyen said it's better to not have one party with so much control. 2 comments

In fact, it easily could be under 8 million."

    Oct 23, 2014 | 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.

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

    Oct 21, 2014 | The Wave

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