November 4 Open Thread

by: Open Thread

Wed Nov 04, 2009 at 19:00:00 PM PST


A quick reminder to all of you Android and iPhone users, check out the Calitics App, available in their respective AppStores. It's pretty rocking!  To the Links:

• Check Speaker Bass's video regarding the water deal -->

• Meg Whitman has already spent $19 million, and plans on spending a lot more. If her pace continues according to the normal trendline, we're talking about a campaign that will rival the presidential campaigns from just 10 years ago. In 2000, George Bush raised $193 million and Al Gore raised $133 million. Well, I guess this will be the test of whether money can buy the governor's race, because Whitman looks set to dump as much money as necessary.

• The AG's office and medical marijuana advocates are trying to overturn an appeal's court decision to invalidate the ID cards associated with the program. The interesting part is that both parties in the lawsuit are opposed to that portion of the court of appeal ruling.

• Tom Del Beccaro, a CRP bigwig, praised David Harmer, despite Harmer's failure to get within 5 points of Garamendi. At any rate, it looks like this isn't the last we've seen of Harmer. AD-15 perhaps...

• Speaking of Garamendi, Speaker Pelosi wants him in DC and sworn in for the health care vote on Friday.

• More from the Chronicle, Carla Marinucci has got VC John Doerr on the record as not being interested in running for governor.

• Republicans want a probe of the taped phone calls incident in the AG's office.

Error in Garofoli Piece (0.00 / 0)

That bodes well, he said, for the East Bay's 15th Assembly district (currently held by Dem Joan Buchanan, but one with where Republicans lead in registered voters.)

I don't know what statistics Garofoli is looking at, but the latest registration stats for AD-15 are

Democratic: 40.61%
Republican: 36.04%
