This week on Take Two's State of Affairs:

  • Assembly speaker Anthony Rendon faced death threats, less than a week after putting the single-payer bill on hold. 
  • Just who is putting up the money for campaign ads? A new bill wants to tell you, but Democrats can't seem to agree on it. 
  • California Dems may have a supermajority, but could too much blue have people seeing red?

Guests:

Sherry Bebitch Jeffe, professor of public policy at USC
Carla Marinucci, senior editor for Politico's California Playbook
