Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Gavin Newsom's gubernatorial road show hits one of California's reddest counties on Sunday.

The San Francisco mayor goes live in Placer County at the county Democratic Party's Jefferson Jackson Dinner. The $30-per-person fundraiser runs from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Blue Goose Fruit Shed, 3550 Taylor Road in Loomis.

Newsom's appearance comes after fellow Democrat Charlie Brown narrowly lost last November to Republican Tom McClintock in the historically conservative 4th Congressional District, which extends from Placer and El Dorado counties to the Oregon border. Brown is also expected to attend the event.

Newsom campaign manager Eric Jaye said the mayor intends to campaign in all 58 California counties. "He is not looking at a red California or a blue California. He'll be in every part," Jaye said.
