Today is day one of the California Democratic Convention, held this year in San Francisco.

Joe Biden is expected to skip the Bay Area in favor of campaigning in Columbus, Ohio. He’s the only top candidate who’ll be absent this weekend.  https://lat.ms/2WzrlP0 

Among the candidates attending is Kamala Harris—though it’s clear that her competitors won’t be ceding her homestate to her.  https://lat.ms/2WgF91t 

Former California Democratic Party Chairman Eric Bauman was forced to resign late last year after multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. A special election will be held to pick his successor.  https://lat.ms/2VXba9K
