DNC Day two is underway with some Bernie supporters holding back their support for Hillary Clinton. Tuesday morning when Sanders spoke to the California delegation, many in the audience refused to show support for Clinton. The convention itself has created logistical hurdles for attendees that didn't exist at the RNC last week. Feminists were excited by the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency eight years ago, so why has some of that enthusiasm dampened? Here in California, the Coastal Commission, which has fought to preserve the state's beloved coastline, has come under threat from a variety of sources. And in LA, there's a pro-wrestling fan favorite who's not a wrestler, but a referee.

In 1972 California voters got on board with Proposition 20, which created the California Coastal Commission. The Coastal Commission's primary duty is to control construction and development along the coast. Now that legacy is under threat all up and down the state coastline.
