California is in the midst of a turning point in the state’s politics. We have seen an increase in the pace of economic recovery, an uptick in vaccinations – and we have also seen a change in the political fortunes to and fro of a Governor who likely faces a recall later this year. Yet Governor Newsom also has the good fortune of a state budget surplus despite an economic slowdown last year and the rise of a pandemic. To discuss further, KCBS Radio Anchors Patti Reising and Jeff Bell were joined by Political Scientist from Sonoma State University Dr. David McCuan and Angela Hart, who covers politics and policy in California for Kaiser Health News, also known as KHN.
