Times' California Politics blog covering 2010 elections

January 19, 2010 | 10:15 am

With 2010 campaigns underway, The Times today is launching a new blog called California Politics.

The blog taps the resources of the Los Angeles Times to provide up-to-the-minute news and analysis on the race for governor and U.S. Senate as well as political news around the state.

The blog is based in Sacramento and is written by Anthony York. What is California Politics covering today?

--A new Rasmussen poll shows California Sen. Barbara Boxer's support under 50%, indicating a potentially competitive head-to-head race with each of her three potential Republican challengers: former Hewlett-Packard chief executive Carly Fiorina, former Rep. Tom Campbell and Assemblyman Chuck DeVore (R-Irvine).

--Martin Garrick (R-Solana Beach) is expected to be elected Assembly Republican leader at a meeting today of the Assembly Republican Caucus.
