The California Democratic Party descends on San Francisco this weekend for its annual statewide convention. Topping the agenda is the election of a new leader to replace former chair Eric Bauman, who resigned in November amid sexual harassment allegations. Fourteen presidential candidates are expected to make appearances to woo delegates, as the state gears up for its March primary. We'll review the convention and talk about the future of the party.
