How much money has poured into the 2018 election?

Hosted by

California’s primary election is one week away. Wealthy donors and corporations have spent more than $26 million on the governor’s race alone. The LA Times says that’s the most money ever spent on a California primary by outside groups. We also talk about the U.S. Supreme Court declining to hear a challenge to a restrictive abortion law in Arkansas, and how the California Supreme Court will force social media companies to turn over some user communications to criminal defendants.
