Once monthly, KOCE’s (PBS SoCal) Real Orange new program runs a good panel discussion between two local liberals and two conservatives.
In this You Tube video (7:42) from Wednesday, Chris Mears, Mark Petracca, Rick Reiff and Michael Capaldi discuss Orange County Supervisor John Moorlach’s potential run for California Governor in 2014.
Petracca, a UCI Professor, said “his candidacy would be another log on the funeral pyre of Orange County aspirants to statewide office”. However, all four panelists were complementary of Moorlach’s public service record and resume.
Moorlach has announced only his interest in the contest so far (he is termed out in ’14), but the panel makes the point that the California GOP is otherwise so bereft of talent, he could have a chance at making the ballot.
