Whitman v Brown / Boxer v Fiorina / Maldonado v Newsom
Exclusive Action News polls conducted recently by Survey USA show Democrats are on the move in key races in California. So, let’s dig a little deeper into the results.
In the Governor’s contest, Democrat Jerry Brown has had a ten point swing in the past three weeks. Brown now leads Republican Meg Whitman 46% to 43%. The race is basically a dead heat with 8% of likely voters casting their ballot for someone other than Brown or Whitman and 3% undecided. The margin of error is 4%.
The Zac Brown Band is riding high these days from awards at the Grammy’s, the Academy of Country Music and CMT's Country Music Awards.
The band’s first tour of California hit the Golden State in the waning days of summer and Jimmy DeMartini, who plays violin and shares vocals with Zac Brown, agreed to a phone interview to talk music and another purpose close to the band’s heart.
This handful of Georgia boys is not taking anything for granted as they navigate their musical dream. In fact they are sharing it with those not able to get to their concerts here in the United States.
They’re taking it to them and entertaining men and women and uniform. They brought their music to Iraq in 2008, to Afghanistan in 2009 and this year another USO tour to Iraq.
You won’t find his name on the ballot in November, but Les Marsden hopes you’ll vote for him if you live in the 19th Congressional District.
Marsden lost the Democratic Primary in June to Loraine Goodwin by just less than 2000 votes. She beat him in every county in the district except his home county of Mariposa.
Since the primary… which Marsden describes as “mindboggling”… he claims he’s been approached by many people on “both sides of the political spectrum” to run as a write-in candidate. So, he’s launched a “No Campaign/Write-In Campaign”.
Marsden will not officially campaign as a write-in candidate for the 19th Congressional District seat, but he says he is in the process of filing the necessary paperwork and gathering signatures to qualify as a designated write-in candidate for the November 2nd election.
Sixteen years of Congressional service are quickly coming to an end for George Radanovich. He may be leaving Congress, but the Mariposa Republican feels his service to the community and the country is far from over.
No, Radanovich is not thinking about another run at political office. Rather, he's pushing a political and philosophical idea that he believes will restore American exceptionalism and build for the future in the U.S. ... and he's written a book about it.
Who is the most popular politician in the Golden State? Like most things... it depends on who you ask.
Consider the evidence from these exclusive Action News polls conducted recently by SurveyUSA.
The State Legislature gets a huge "Disapproval" rating of 78% with only 14% approving of the job our elected Assembly members and State Senators are doing, supposedly on our behalf.
The answer to the popularity question is not found at the State Capitol. Action News Political Analyst, Tony Capozzi, believes the general public is upset with the Legislature as a whole regarding issues like the state budget, but they're happy with their own local legislator... such are the spoils of safe districts.
