Tough primary night for liberals in California; Biden to host Summit of the Americas

In San Francisco, voters made the historic decision to recall District Attorney Chesa Boudin, who was elected in 2019 when he ran on the idea of ​​a less punitive criminal justice system, including ending cash bail and sending fewer people to jail. …

In Los Angeles, Rick Caruso and Rep. Karen Bass (D-California), who was once considered a candidate for President Biden’s running mate, appear to be headed for a runoff in the mayoral race. But Caruso, a longtime former Republican who has made fighting crime the centerpiece of his campaign, led Bass 42-37 early on.

The results come after voters returned similar verdicts in the 2021 election. In Minneapolis, Buffalo, Seattle and New York’s Long Island, they voted against candidates and measures related to the “defund the police” movement and to a cash deposit.
