The Race for California Insurance Commissioner

Hosted by

Ten years ago, California Insurance Commissioner Chuck Quackenbush resigned in disgrace. He had taken campaign contributions from the insurance industry, and then gave the industry breaks after the Northridge Earthquake. Since then, candidates for the job have not accepted industry contributions. Monday on WWLA? we discussed independent campaign commercials produced for Republican candidate Mike Villines by JobsPac, run by the State Chamber of Commerce. JobsPac is financed in part by insurance industry money. After the program, Villines' campaign said he would appear tonight with his Democratic opponent, Dave Jones. But a few hours before the program was taped, Villines' campaign said he had a scheduling conflict. Jones joins us tonight.
