Twenty-five-year-old Erin Schrode, a Democrat, is running for the House in the 2nd Congressional District, which includes coastal counties north of the Golden Gate Bridge to the Oregon line. She is the youngest candidate in any of California’s 53 House races and may be the youngest in the nation. She actually turned 25 during the campaign – the minimum required age to serve in the House.

The new poltical landscape reflects such things as redistricting, the top-two primary and the majority-vote budget. Partisanship even seems to be waning –gasp! — in Sacramento, as some Republicans crossed party lines to support driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants and liberals behaved pragmatically in order to pass a fracking bill. Does a new day loom in the Capitol? The Millennials hope so. (Photo: Eddie Villanueva)
