We start with the latest political developments in our very own backyard.
Southern California Public Radio political reporters Alice Walton and Kitty Felde will be Take Two's guides for what happened in Tuesday's election and what it means for Southern California.
Let's talk turnout - was it as dismal as the prognosticators said it would be?
Now to who won - and who didn't. State Senator Ted Lieu joins the Congressional ranks, having beat out Republican Elan Carr for Henry Waxman's seat. Not surprising I suppose since that leans pretty heavily Democratic. How close was this race in the end? So now that he is in, what can his constituents expect from him?
What about the LA County Board of Supervisors race? You have Bobby Shriver, nephew of John F. Kennedy, pitted against former state senator Shiela Kuehl - who was the big winner?
- It's not often that a new face joins this board of five people - when was the last time a seat was open? What's he/she going to bring to the table here?
This is no surprise but Jim McDonnell is the new Sheriff of LA County. Take Two will talk to him later in the show but what will be his biggest challenge out of the gate?
On to the propositions. Prop 45, 46 and 48 got voted down - what happened there?
Let's look state-wide - another obvious win: Jerry Brown is still Governor of California having easily beat out Republican Neel Kashkari. Would you call it a landslide?
- One poll yesterday said 4 out of 10 voters apparently didn't even know Brown was seeking re-election. What's up with that?
- From the results, can we say that Californians feel pretty good about the job Brown is doing - or is it that not enough people voted?
A race that was close was the one for state school superintendent - Tom Torlakson has kept the job. Now what was wild about this race is the amount of money spent - $30 million - and the race was between two Democrats. Why so heated?
Torlakson won pretty narrowly. What does this say about how voters are feeling about educational reform in this state?
