Could California's Presidential Primary Not Be Over? ()
Last Tuesday’s record turnout for a primary election has swamped registrars of voters in California’s fifty-eight counties. The Secretary of State estimates that 845,000 absentee and provisional ballots have not been counted, and that’s without including some of the biggest counties of all: Alameda, Riverside and Los Angeles. They haven’t reported on how many they still have to go.
A Showdown in Berkeley ()
The Mayor of the City of Berkeley has apologized to the Marine Corps for the City Council’s letter saying a recruiting station is not welcome. But six US Senators are already trying to cancel earmarks that fund organic lunches for Berkeley’s public schools. Tomorrow night, the Council will meet to consider rescinding its dis-invitation.
