The Race for State Attorney General

Hosted by

Los Angeles District Attorney Steve Cooley and San Francisco DA Kamala Harris faced off yesterday in a debate in their race for Attorney General. Republican Cooley and Democrat Harris disagreed over Proposition 23, which would suspend Governor Schwarzenegger’s new law against global warming; Prop 19, which would legalize marijuana; California’s unhealthy and overcrowded prison service, which is under the receivership of a panel of three federal judges; and Prop 8, the ban on same-sex marriage passed two years ago and declared unconstitutional by a federal court.
