Brown and Whitman Going Negative for the Win

Hosted by

Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown have been short on important specifics so far, but their contest has heated up with accusations of using TV spots to lie. Did Brown really raise taxes when he was governor 35 years ago? What does Bill Clinton have to do with it?  Do Whitman's plans to reduce spending really mean cutting $7 billion from education?  Who's setting the agenda, and who's on defense? In a close race, is either candidate reaching the Independents who will decide the election? Also, will the LA City Council approve tough new rules on accepting free tickets to public events?  On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, there are 2.5 million miles of natural gas pipelines in the United States, enough to circle the Earth a hundred times. Last week's deadly explosion near San Francisco raises a troubling question: are Americans living with unacceptable risk?
