Presidential race will put California’s foibles on trial

Joe Biden’s selection of Sen. Kamala Harris as his vice presidential running mate is a source of great pride for California Democrats, understandably so. Their reactions generally project that a Vice President Harris will be the odds-on favorite to succeed Biden in either 2024 or 2028, so California will have an advocate in high places for many years to come. “California has been too often irrelevant in national politics since Ronald Reagan left in 1988,” Ace Smith, a top strategist on Harris’ i...

Kamala Harris’ veep nod could end rule of Bay Area clique

For almost 30 years, a small clique of politicians from the San Francisco Bay area has ruled in California, holding all the state’s ticket-topping offices except when muscleman actor Arnold Schwarzenegger partially jostled them aside for awhile in the early 2000s. In fact, Bay area politicians have reigned supreme through most of the last century, even after the state’s population center moved south to the Los Angeles and San Diego regions. The bipartisan Bay area dominance brought to power peop...

If Harris heads to DC, Southern California could loom large in the scramble to fill her seat

Now that Democrat Joe Biden has chosen Rep. Kamala Harris as his running mate, it hasn’t dampened the political stakes in Southern California. Far from it. The political drama will likely be profound, especially if the ticket ultimately snags the White House. That would mean a U.S. senator would need replacing — with a poignant tumbling of political dominoes to follow. Perhaps the most Google’d question in the state on Tuesday — how would the U.S. Senate seat get filled? Should the Democrats win...
