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

Gubernatorial candidates Republican John Cox and Democrat Gavin Newsom

  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?
