News Panel: California Primary

The California primary could be one of the most dramatic in recent years thanks to two landmark voter approved measures now in play. How will a new top-two primary system and newly drawn political district lines affect legislative and congressional races -- and what impact could that have on the national political landscape? Voters will also decide whether to modify term limits for state lawmakers, raise taxes on cigarettes and enact pension reform.

Guests:

  • Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle
  • Dan Walters, Sacramento Bee
  • Jerry Roberts, CalBuzz

According to the 2010 census, Asian Americans are the fastest growing racial group in the United States.

We'll hear from DNC vice-chair Congressman Mike Honda about his efforts to engage Asian Americans in the political process and and we'll profile Republican "Young Gun" Ricky Gill, one of a record number of Asian American candidates running for Congress this year.
