CAPITOL WEEKLY PODCAST: Today we are joined by Robb Korinke, a principal, along with Mike Madrid, at GrassrootsLab. Korinke and Madrid met at the League of California Cities and bonded over their shared fascination with local politics. Madrid, a prominent NorCal Republican, and Korinke, an LA Democrat, may seem like an odd couple to run a political firm, but they make it work.
We asked Robb about working with someone in the opposition, the dramatic party shift that has taken place at the local level since 2015, the LA Mayor’s race, and who HE thinks had the Worst Week in CA Politics.
