Media Roundtable: Wildfires Continue to Spread Across CA & The Democratic National Convention
On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we're getting an update on wildfires raging across the state of California. So far, they’ve consumed more than 124,000 acres across Sonoma, Lake, Napa, Yolo and Solano counties, destroying more than 100 structures and threatening 25,000 others. Thousands have fled their homes.
Later in the show, we'll discuss this week’s Democratic National Convention and the party’s platform. What is the party's main message and how do they plan to get out the vote in critical swing states?
