California's races can probably all be summarized with one word: "nasty." From the gubernatorial race in which Jerry Brown defeated Meg Whitman, and the Senate race in which incumbent Barbara Boxer won over Carly Fiorina, Patt Morrison, longtime columnist for The Los Angeles Times and host of “Patt Morrison” on KPCC 89.3, Southern California Public Radio, and Theda Skocpol, professor of political science at Harvard University, join us for a read on what happened in California's races.
