How Will the Open Primary Change Things for California Voters? Can a teacher win an election when career politicians oppose her? Will progressive voters show up and the power of big money?
Nick Antonicello: How does Bowen send mailings to voters insinuating support for a speedy end to these conflicts when she doesn’t have the political will to support Kovic’s pledge?

Dick Price: I want someone who will stand on the corner and raise some hell. Lord knows, Washington has all the “go along to get along” it needs.

Marcy Winograd announced she is kicking off a campaign to fill Jane Harman’s vacated 36th CD seat. The kick off starts Saturday, Feb. 26, 10 am in front of Fox Drug of Torrance (Old Town), 1327 El Prado, Torrance, 90501. Last June, Marcy Winograd, a teacher at Crenshaw High School, ran against the incumbent Jane Harman and received 41% of the vote.
