California Senate Debate on ABC TV :
– California Attorney General was very smooth and polished in the debate, but she cannot hide the fact that she would like nothing better than to skate on all the state’s legal investigations and trials and traipse off to Washington DC, leaving it all behind. /CJ
Another Clueless Democrat US Senate Candidate: Clueless on Sanctuary Cities
“How about sanctuary cities?” board members asked the former lieutenant governor. “Would you support denying [federal] aid to sanctuary cities?”
“Well, you know I am really not clear in my mind what a sanctuary city is and I guess there are cities that —,” Judge began to respond.
Judge also drew a blank when she was asked about Sarah’s Law, a bill that would have forced federal immigration officials to detain illegal immigrants who have been charged with a crime in which the victim was killed or seriously injured.”

Kamala Harris said she’s for increased transparency in law enforcement. Here’s her record
– LA Times
“Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris has opposed legislation that would require her office to independently investigate fatal police shootings. Harris has also stopped short of endorsing statewide regulations on the use of police body cameras, saying that she believed all officers should wear them but that local agencies are best equipped to enact policies.

“My opponent has passed one bill in her 20 years in Congress and that was to name a post office,” Harris said. She also noted that Sanchez had missed more House votes in the past year than all but two other members.”

Ouch. / CJ
