On May 19, East Bay voters in California's 7th State Senate District will choose a new representative. Their candidates in this special election are Orinda Mayor Stephen Glazer and State Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla -- two Democrats, whose political fate may lie in the hands of Republican voters. We'll cut through the hyperbole of this $7 million-plus race and get the candidates' takes on issues such as taxes, BART strikes and teacher tenure reform.

Guests:

Susan Bonilla, California assemblymember representing the 14th District and candidate for the 7th State Senate District

Steven Glazer, mayor of Orinda and candidate for the 7th State Senate District
