State and Local Election Results

Hosted by

Proposition 8 appears to have passed, but same-sex marriage is already making its way back to the courts. Governor Schwarzenegger says Prop 11 passed, too, but others insist it's still too close to call.  Statewide bond issues passed, too, but it may be a long time before anyone sees any money. On the local ballots, bond measures also did fine, despite economic troubles for city and county governments. We review the election results and talk with Los Angeles County's newest elected supervisor. Former Police Chief Bernard Parks is still on the LA City Council, but State Senator Mark Ridley-Thomas has a new job.
