The state’s primary is now March 3 -- moved up from June. Will an earlier primary allow California to have more say in this election than in the past?  

We also look at how campaigning in California is different from Iowa or another big swing state, and which candidates are polling well and which are not.

“The key thing for the Democrats at this point: all these candidates who have all their fan bases, tell everyone, ‘If I don’t win, you fall in line with whoever’s gotta win. This is what we need.’ I hope that happens, at least for the sake of the Democrats,” says journalist Gustavo Arellano.
