Main Topic

The Race for California Attorney General ()

California's Attorney General is Democrat Bill Lockyer, but term limits have led him to run for Treasurer. Democrat Jerry Brown wants to replace him, as does Republican Charles Poochigian. Brown, Mayor of Oakland one of the best known politicians in California, followed his father, "Pat" Brown, to the Governorship, separated by eight years of Ronald Reagan.  "Pat" Brown was Attorney General before he was Governor, and now Jerry Brown wants to follow him to that office as well. Poochigian, a two-term State Senator and former Assemblyman from Fresno, is less well known and far behind in the polls. We hear from both candidates on gun control, the environment and capitol punishment.
