This week on State of Affairs:

  • If you think things are tough for the Republican Party in California, get this: In the first six months of this year, Democrats in the state raised three dollars for every one dollar Republicans brought in.
  • But it's not all roses for Democrats. There's an ongoing dispute over who should lead the state's Democratic Party, and it could foreshadow problems for Democrats nationwide. 


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