Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Gov. Jerry Brown is in Beverly Hills today to address congregants of Temple Emanuel on Yom Kippur, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar. On the day that observant Jews fast and atone for sins of the past year, Brown's topic is "California Matters."

We're not trying to draw any connections there, just reporting the facts.

DEBATE: In case you missed yesterday's debate between Republican Congressman Dan Lungren and his Democratic challenger Dr. Ami Bera -- who are in one of the most closely watched Congressional races nationwide -- you can catch a re-broadcast today. The debate will air again at 9 a.m. on News10 and at 10 a.m. on Capital Public Radio.

FUNDRAISER: On the long list of fundraisers going down this week, this one caught our eye. Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi is holding an event in Hayward tonight to raise money for her campaign for Alameda County Supervisor. Hayashi is running for the seat formerly held by Nadia Lockyer, the estranged wife of state Treasurer Bill Lockyer who resigned her seat on the board of supes after her drug abuse and extramarital affair became public. Listed to attend Hayashi's event are Assemblywoman Fiona Ma and former Assembly Speaker Rep. Karen Bass.
