Hosted by

California’s next statewide election is less than a month away—the first without an incumbent Governor on the ballot since 1998. We’ll hear how you can vote in the Democratic or Republican primary—even if you’re registered as Decline to State. Also tonight, stocks soared worldwide over Europe’s trillion-dollar commitment to shore up its economy. Is a major crisis being only kicked down the road? And…President Obama’s latest nominee to the US Supreme Court. Can Elena Kagan be confirmed by the Senate?
