July 28, 2010 |  7:28 am

Democrats are hoping the first-time voters who came out to vote for Barack Obama in 2008 will be back in 2010.

A new group that says it is promoting traditional values and targeting Latino voters says they are ready to spend $1 million to help Carly Fiorina, but they aren't saying where their money is coming from.

State Controller John Chiang has been dragged into the saga in the city of Bell. His office has been asked to conduct an independent audit of the city's books.

Michael Hiltzik looks at the campaign to suspend the state's greenhouse gas law.

And in case you were wondering, there is no progress in the state's ongoing budget stalemate.
