FROM THIS EPISODE

While the rest of the country was tilting toward the Republicans, California went the other way, with all the statewide elective offices going to Democrats and only the race for Attorney General still undecided. Voters rejected legalized marijuana, but passed measures that will drastically change the rules in Sacramento. We hear from Jerry Brown, Meg Whitman and a panel of politicos about what happened yesterday and what it means for the future.

Main Topic Midterm Elections: California Goes in a Different Direction

All California’s statewide elected offices will be in the hands of Democrats starting next year, with only the race for Attorney General still undecided. Despite having spent at least $140 of her own money as the Republican candidate for Governor, Meg Whitman lost by 13 percentage points — almost a million votes. Governor-elect Jerry Brown said nothing more about how he plans to govern than he did during his campaign. We join a panel of politicos to discuss yesterday's results and what they mean for the future.
