    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5337H] * The standoff between Russia and the Ukraine government over the disputed Crimea region continues to intensify. This weekend citizens of Crimea will vote on a referendum to decide if they should secede from Ukraine and become part of Russia. In a sign of solidarity, President Obama hosted the acting Ukrainian prime minister at the White House on Wednesday and warned Russian President Vladimir Putin to end Russia's military incursion in Ukraine or "pay a cost." Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with Russia's foreign minister on Friday in an attempt to de-escalate the situation and stop the referendum. Indira Lakshmanan of Bloomberg News will have analysis of the eleventh-hour attempt by the U.S. and European allies to reach a diplomatic solution to end the crisis in Ukraine.
    * The Justice Department is investigating the stunning charges by Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein that the CIA conducted unauthorized searches of Senate computers. During a nearly 50-minute speech on the Senate floor, Feinstein accused the CIA of interfering with the congressional investigation into the agency's possible use of torture. CIA Director John Brennan rejected the allegations and insisted the agency is fully cooperating with the congressional probe. Ed O'Keefe of The Washington Post will have the latest on this escalating public dispute between Senator Feinstein and the agency she has long supported.
    * In Florida, Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win a special House election to succeed the late Rep. Bill Young (R). The victory has energized the GOP because Jolly focused much of his campaign on the promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act. For Democrats it was a sobering loss because the former lobbyist won in a district that Barack Obama carried in 2008 and 2012. Susan Davis of USA Today returns from Florida to explain why Republicans and Democrats can't agree on the national significance of this race heading into the 2014 midterms.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#120H] State Republican Convention Kicks Off and Will Affirmative Action Return to California Universities?
    California Republican Convention Kicks Off
    California Republicans have their work cut out for them as they gather this weekend in Burlingame for the state convention: they hold no statewide offices, their share of registered voters has shrunk to less than 30 percent and they have minimal power in Sacramento. The party's new chair, former State Senator Jim Brulte, wants to rebuild the GOP from the ground up, a job he says could take up to a decade.

    Guests:
    •Hector Barajas, GOP strategist
    •Scott Detrow, KQED Sacramento bureau chief

    Further Reporting:
    California Republicans Plot a Return to Relevance
    Forum: The Future of the GOP

    Will Affirmative Action Return to California Universities?
    Since the passage of Proposition 209 in 1996, it has been illegal for California's public universities to consider race, ethnicity and gender during the admission process. Following the passage of the law, UC Berkeley saw a 49 percent drop in admission offers to African-American students, and other University of California schools saw the numbers of African-American, Latino and Native-American students decline. Now State Senator Ed Hernandez (D- West Covina) wants to amend parts of Prop 209. His measure passed the State Senate last January, and if passed by the Assembly, would be put before voters this November. It's been met with vocal opposition, particularly among Asian-Americans.

    Guests:
    •Ed Hernandez, State Senator (D- West Covina)
    •Emil Guillermo, Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund
    •Evan Low, Campbell city councilmember and former mayor
    •Aimee Allison, senior vice president of PowerPAC
