Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

There was little agreement today when John Burton, the state Democratic Party chairman, and Ron Nehring, his Republican counterpart, made a joint appearance at the Sacramento Press Club.

One of those disagreements was on how to pronounce the name of Carly Fiorina, the GOP challenger to Democratic U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer. While Nehring pronounced it correctly, Burton repeatedly pronounced it as if it were spelled "Fiorino."

But Nehring may have compensated for that verbal faux pas by repeatedly referring to Burton's side as the "Democrat Party," using the standard GOP nomenclature that irritates members of the Democratic Party to no end.
