"This is here. Now broadcasting from southern California this week. We're Democrats hoped to flip four Republican House seats voters in California are also electing a new governor and deciding whether to re elect longtime Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein joining us now or to journalists who cover politics in California from San Francisco, we've got Scott Shafer senior editor for K Q E D. Hi, scott. Hey, Jeremy and with me in the studio KPCC in Pasadena's, Mary plumber, whose political correspondent for KPCC. Hi, mary. Hey there. So let's start with the governor's race. Jerry Brown is not able to run again because of term limits. The race is between his Lieutenant governor Gavin Newsom, a democrat and Republican businessman. John Cox, Scott, you just moderated the first and possibly only debate this week on K Q E D. Let's listen to a little of what Gavin Newsom said, I the California dream is predicated on social mobility, the richest and the poorest state. We have to mind that gap. We have to address the issue of cost of housing. We have to address the issue of affordability broadly. We have to address the issue of homelessness, and we have to tackle the vaccine issue of healthcare and the issues related healthcare that are devouring the state budget, and here's Republican John Cox. I have a vision of the state being affordable and livable for people. I think we can do that. If we get rid of the special interest influence in Sacramento. The interest groups that had habits Sacramento benefit from the status quo the status quo isn't working for average working California's they can't afford to live here. And that's why they're leaving sounds like they both agree that California is getting to be unaffordable for a lot of people. Scott Newsom has a big lead in the polls. This Cox have a chance. Well, it's tough. The math is tough for him. The last time a Republican won a statewide race in California two thousand six his name was Arnold Schwarzenegger. And the Republicans have just seen their share of the electorate shrinking there. Now, literally a third party in California. Democrats are about forty four percent of the electorate declined to state independent voters. No party preference. Voters twenty-seven percent in the GOP now down to about twenty five percent. Just a quarter of the electorate so in order for somebody like John Cox to win the to have a lot of appeal to independent voters and some conservative Democrats. And so we just really haven't seen that yet in the polling. I mean, it's just a tough place. California is for Republicans to win statewide. If Newsom wins, Mary will it be basically, like another term for Jerry Brown or different? You know? I'm governor Brown has been very aggressive against many of President Trump's policies and Newsom is indicated he'd take a similar approach, especially on issues like immigration, healthcare, environmental issues, Newsom support sanctuary cities. For example, he backs California becoming a zero carbon emissions state. But there are a couple of areas where he's indicated he'd be willing to invest more heavily than Brown has one of those areas is early childhood during the recession state funding for programs like infant, toddler care and preschool was severely cut. Those funds have not been restored under governor Jerry Brown Newsom as indicated he'd be willing to invest more heavily there. We're seeing that issue reflected in TV ads that he's running as well, as you mentioned Jerry Brown has gone up against President Trump. The the state has sued the Trump administration more. Than a dozen times over everything from environmental issues to immigration, President Trump slammed California right back here. He is earlier this year at an event touting his plan for a border wall. Now, I think the governor's doing a terrible job running.
