Little-known GOP Candidate With Big Ideas

Republican candidate for California Governor John Cox is conservative & he supports much of President Trump’s anti-sanctuary city/build the wall agenda. Still some of his off-beat proposals could win the support of liberal Democrats. In a feisty interview with This Golden State’s Randy Shandobil, Cox talks about requiring lawmakers to wear the logos of their top donors on their clothing & talks about adding thousands of new legislators to the state legislature as a way to get rid of political corruption. Cox accuses Democrats of playing to anti-Trump paranoia as a way to raise money.

Antonio Villaraigosa’s Competitive Disadvantage

For four years now, former LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, a Democrat, has been out of office, out of mind; not a good launching pad for the 2018 election for governor. So now, in addition to his Democrat advisers, he’s working with two Republican strategists. In an interview with This Golden State’s Randy Shandobil, Villaraigosa talks about how he’ll focus on those Californians who feel left behind economically. When Shandobil reminds Villaraigosa that is sounds like a key part of the Trump campaign, Villaraigosa gets a bit defensive.

In an interview with This Golden State’s Randy Shandobil, the state’s banker reveals a maverick side. Wonkish, but defiant at times; he has a history of standing up to power and a backstory filled with discrimination and family tragedy.
