It's interesting to see how the political parties in California have changed their tactics since "Top Two" was implemented. They now do not want to risk having a real primary. They want to confine the competition to within the Party, so they field only one candidate in the primary. It certainly opens the process up to more deal-making (a.k.a. bribes) to take place, and takes away the choice from the voters. In California, it appears we will now have "anointed" Congresspersons.

Does Senator DeSaulnier speak Spanish? Fluently?

I would NEVER vote for anybody who doesn't have a working knowledge of Spanish in the great State of California.

i rest my case...
