Your Call Election Special: Gavin Newsom and John Cox face off in their first and only debate

Oct 10, 2018


  Every Wednesday until Election Day on November 6th, Your Call will host a special second hour at 11 a.m. Each week Rose Aguilar and guests will discuss California's crucial races, propositions, and regional measures.

This week, we’ll discuss California’s governor race. On Monday at the studios of KQED, Democrat Gavin Newsom and Republican John Cox took part in their only one-on-one debate. Why just one debate? The candidates sparred over inequality, the housing crisis, homelessness, and immigration. What questions do you have on where Newsom and Cox stand on key issues facing California?

 

Guests:

Phil Willon, a reporter who covers California politics from the Los Angeles Times’ state capital bureau in Sacramento

Laurel Rosenhall, a reporter who covers California politics for CALmatters
