The California primary election will be here before you know it. Presidential, congressional, and state legislative races will appear on the ballot for the March 3 primary, which will take place two months earlier than usual. The move up is an effort to increase the state’s influence over the Democratic nomination. AirTalk host Larry Mantle and KPCC senior politics reporter Libby Denkmann, along with political analysts, are ready to break down what it all means following the election.

Whether you vote by mail or in person, Southern Californians will decide some heated local races and nearly half a dozen contested House districts that could impact the balance of political power in Congress. So what impact could California’s results have on the 2020 presidential race?

Join Larry, Libby, and our powerhouse political experts for a live recap of the primary results and a forward-looking discussion about what it could all mean for California and the November general election. 

Guests:

Libby Denkmann – KPCC senior politics reporter

Fernando Guerra – Loyola Marymount University professor of political science and Chicana/o Latina/o studies and director of the Center for the Study of Los Angeles

Jennifer Merolla – professor of political science at the University of California, Riverside
