Can the California GOP Survive the California Republican Party?

Hosted by

Three years ago, Governor Schwarzenegger told the state Republican Party, "We're dying at the box office." Since then, registration in California is down to 31 percent. Republican Party leaders are now bashing not just the unpopular Governor but some of their own candidates on next week's ballot.  Even if there's a sweep nationwide, can the Party survive in California? Also, California's not so bad for business after all. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, will California be the first state to legalize pot?  Will the Obama Administration reverse the will of the voters?  How do pot farmers in Humboldt County feel about Proposition 19?
