The California Lt. Governor has few real responsibilities. They sit on the boards of the state’s public university systems and the State Lands Commission. But their main role is to step up, should the governor become incapacitated or die.

As part of our election 2018 coverage, we meet lieutenant governor candidate Eleni Kounalakis. A real estate developer and former ambassador to Hungary, Kounalakis joins us in studio to discuss her priorities if she’s elected lieutenant governor.
