California's Senate Republicans have chosen Dave Cogdill of Modesto as their new leader. Democrats had earlier chosen Darrell Steinberg as their next leader in the chamber.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
