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

14 presidential candidates will campaign for nominations & the state party will choose a new chair after being rocked by sexual harassment scandals.  https://lat.ms/2MguHlU 

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
