DAs for Cal. AG

The Republican and Democratic voters of California have chosen the district attorneys of LA and SF, respectively, as their nominees for attorney general.

LA DA Steve Cooley has created some controversy in the past by his position that the Three Strikes law should be moderated, but in the end he was supported by the state's toughest prosecutors.

SF DA Kamala Harris has created considerably more controversy by her refusal to enforce the state's death penalty law at all, even in the case of cop killers. That stance won her election and reelection in SF and didn't cost her the Democratic primary, but I expect it will be a harder sell in a statewide general election.

Jack Leonard and Shane Goldmacher have this story in the LA Times.
