Villaraigosa, Eastin Can’t List Former Titles on Ballot

The Democrats collected a bunch of endorsers.

Dec. 11, 2017, 10:55 a.m.

Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (D) and former state schools superintendent Delaine Eastin (D) won’t be allowed to list their former titles on the ballot, while Lt. Gov.

ON THE ATTACK. “Chiang plans to launch a new attack against … Newsom … Tuesday by pointing out that” former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) Newsom’s 2013 book, Citizenville, “a blueprint for the Republican Party.” (Los Angeles Times)

Chiang said he supports “universal care” and “the approach of single-payer.” “But, he was quick to add: ‘If we’re gonna bring in a new health care system, then we ought to tell people how much it’s gonna cost and how we’re gonna pay for it.’ Yet when asked how much it would cost and how he’d pay for it, Chiang didn’t say. Instead, he raised his own questions about what a single-payer system might look like in California.” (Capital Public Radio)

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT. Businessman John Cox (R) in a recent pitch: “I love this state, I have three homes here. … I can hear my PR guy having a heart attack, but I want people to know I’ve made an investment here, I love it.” (San Francisco Chronicle)
