California Democratic supremacy tested by crime, inflation
The Independent says Democrats in many parts of the country are facing a potentially grim political year, but in California, no one is talking about the liberal stronghold changing direction.

Mail ballots are already going out for the June 7 primary election that will set the stage for November runoffs. The election is taking place within a cauldron of dicey political issues: the possible repeal of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion, widespread frustration with a homelessness crisis and with residents suffering pocketbook stress from galloping inflation and soaring home costs — the state’s median price hit a record $849,080 in March.
