What's Wrong with California's Republican Party?

Hosted by

California's newest Republican state senator is Sam Blakeslee, who represents Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Luis Obispo. But he says his own party's insiders require "litmus tests" and "fear the rise of strong independent Republicans who don't kiss their ring." Dan Morain, senior opinion editor for the Sacramento Bee, says, "The big tent envisioned by Ronald Reagan has become a pup tent."
