With Brown-Whitman Debate, Campaign Season Picks Up Steam

Hosted by

Los Angeles recorded a record high of 113 degrees today. Long Beach hit 107. How long will it last? What does it mean for public health, brush fires and energy use? Tomorrow night, Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown will debate for the first time in their contest for Governor with polls showing one of the closest races anywhere the country. We preview tomorrow's confrontation, which will air live on KCRW at 6 pm. What about Fiorina and Boxer? How accurate are the samples of a growing bloc of voters: Hispanics? On our rebroadcast of today’s To the Point, President Obama has achieved a lot, but even White House advisors concede that he’s losing the middle class vote. We hear about the stimulus, healthcare, Bush-era tax cuts and the November elections.
