Also:

  • A month ago, voters in the 34th district chose Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez to take Xavier Becerra's old seat in Congress — so why hasn't Gomez been sworn in?
  • Has anyone seen President Trump around? Nearly six months since taking office, he has yet to pay California a visit.

Guests:

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