Both candidates for CA Secretary of State support making the office nonpartisan

The Los Angeles Times had good coverage of the race for Secretary of State in California, pitting incumbent Republican Bruce McPherson against Democrat Debra Bowen. This race has been a sleeper so far, but given that as of September 30 McPherson had over $1 million on hand, it is likely we’ll hear more about this race before election day.

One bit of good news: both Bowen and McPherson support making this office nonpartisan. Let’s hope that, whichever of them wins the November election, they do work to achieve that goal in the next four years.
