We'll discuss what's in the bond and hear from opponents who claim that it's too costly and won't solve the state's water needs.

Lawmakers Weigh Automatic Recounts in State Elections

Election watchers call it the doomsday scenario: a nail-biter of a statewide election with a recount process so antiquated that the whole thing ends up in court.

Dan Schnur on What He Learned From Political Defeat

The name Dan Schnur is familiar in California political and media circles. He's a former adviser to Republicans like Pete Wilson and John McCain, an oft-quoted political pundit and chair of the state's top political watchdog agency, the FPPC. Most recently, he headed the Jesse Unruh Institute of Politics at USC. This week, Schnur's name was also on the ballot -- as a candidate for secretary of state. Schnur left political party labels behind and ran as a non-partisan, independent candidate. But he came in fourth, just behind indicted State Senator Leland Yee. Has Schnur's take on politics changed now that he's been a candidate himself?
