FROM THIS EPISODE

State Attorney General Kamala Harris has been welcomed by some US Senators to replace retiring Barbara Boxer next year. But isn't there supposed to be an election? What about Xavier Becerra, Loretta Sanchez and Antonio Villaraigosa? For the first open seat from the biggest state in the Union since 1992, Hispanic Caucuses in Washington and Sacramento want a competitive primary. We look at the prospects.

Also, Metro is about to open the bids for a bike share program in downtown LA. Will it be big enough to avoid the "disaster" that happened in Anaheim?

Are Democrats about to Stage a Virtual "Coronation?" 15 MIN, 23 SEC

Since Barbara Boxer announced her retirement from the US Senate, Attorney General Kamala Harris is the only announced candidate. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts has endorsed her. New York's Kirsten Gillibrand says she needs Kamala Harris "by my side." Hispanic leaders are saying, "not so fast." One of them is Tony Cárdenas, the first Latino elected to Congress from the San Fernando Valley and a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
