Staffers may be wearing shorts and the politicians may be back in their districts, but there's still a bit of politics in the air during the Legislature's summer siesta.
Freshly rested from our own hiatus, this week's Capitol Connection podcast offers a quick reset of the political playing field. Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and I chat about two items of note: the big state Senate win for Republicans in a San Joaquin Valley special election, and the resumption of a fight that invokes political debates of days gone by.
(And yes, keen observers: the News10 story of mine that I so confidently aired on Thursday, in fact, did not... giving away to breaking news that afternoon. Look for it Friday evening in our 6pm broadcast.)
