The conventional wisdom is that Christine O’Donnell’s primary win for Senate in Delaware took another state out of play for the GOP, who hope to win back control of the Senate in November.
That puts a lot of weight on the remaining states in play for both parties. Until recently, polls showed the California Senate race between Democratic incumbent Senator Barbara Boxer and her Republican challenger, ex-HP CEO Carly Fiorina, a toss-up. Now that Boxer is pulling ahead – in some polls by as much as 8 points – the race is gaining national attention from Democrats, Republicans and the Tea Party backed PAC, FreedomWorks.
Yesterday, both candidates participated in a debate that aired on KPCC, Southern California Public Radio. We speak with one of the co-moderators of yesterday’s debate, Patt Morrison, about the debate, the race, and the national attention being paid on California politics. Patt is a longtime columnist for the Los Angeles Times and host of “Patt Morrison” on KPCC 89.3, Southern California Public Radio.
