2022 election preview with Jim Brulte and Garry South

CAPITOL WEEKLY PODCAST: With the 2022 election just days away, we asked longtime political party animals Jim Brulte and Garry South to weigh in on what they expect to see on Tuesday and make their predictions. Brulte, the former head of the California Republican Party, sees a good night for Republicans nationally and expects tight CA congressional districts to swing the GOP’s way. Garry South, a high profile Democratic strategist, suggests that it will be very difficult for Dems to retain control of the House, but expects good news in California races.

And, we tell you who had the worst week in California politics.
