California’s primary is rapidly approaching. Each week, Larry is checking in with KPCC politics reporter Libby Denkmann as she follows all things voting in SoCal. Here are some of the headlines she’s watching this week:

  • City Council races: CD 14 (Lee-Lundquist rematch), CD 4 (Ryu reelection with several challengers), and Kevin De Leon/Mark Ridley Thomas likely returning to city council and then launching mayoral campaigns

  • Bernie Sanders, who just topped the PPIC poll, is back in our neck of the woods Friday to sweep through SoCal (Santa Ana + Bakersfield) — what his possible dominance could mean for CA delegate distribution 

  • Michael Bloomberg, banking on a Super Tuesday strategy, is paying Californians to post about him on social media

  • Vote centers start to open up this weekend in Los Angeles and Orange County
