Today, on State of Affairs:
- The Governator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, joined Governor Jerry Brown Tuesday as he extended the state's cap and trade program — but could the bi-partisan deal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions cost Brown one of his pet projects?
- Remember Cal Exit? Well, meet Cal Exit 2.0. A new effort to secede California from the union is advancing.
- Democrats aren't the only ones hoping to flip some seats this midterm. The GOP's setting its sights on a few purple districts.
