California’s Attorney General-elect held her first victory appearance in Los Angeles today. The current District Attorney of San Francisco, Kamala Harris promises she’ll now serve the entire state. She announced a transition team that includes former LAPD Chief Bill Bratton, former Secretaries of State Warren Christopher and George Schultz, and civil rights attorney Connie Rice. Among the issues she addressed was the recidivism rate in state prisons, the highest in the nation. Jim Newton is editor-at-large for the Los Angeles Times.
