Coming off last night’s California primary, the table is set for what to expect in November.
We know that the governor’s race will be between Democrat Gavin Newsom and Republican John Cox, and that Kevin de Leon earned a spot to challenge incumbent Dianne Feinstein for her seat in the U.S. Senate.
There’s also more clarity regarding the crucial O.C. congressional race, which could help determine whether Democrats take back the House during midterm elections.
Larry and his panel of guests look forward to November 8.
