Recently retired El Dorado County Superior Court Judge Steven Bailey, a Republican, is one of five candidates running for state Attorney General in the June primary.
Bailey brought his campaign to Fresno recently and sat with GV Wire for an interview. His short “takes” on five issues of concern to Californians comprise the video above:
- Why he’s running for attorney general
- Writing ballot titles
- Criminal justice reforms (specifically Proposition 47)
- Challenging federal laws
- Sanctuary cities
There are two Democrats in the field — Attorney General Xavier Becerra and state Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones. Also challenging Becerra are two Southern California lawyers, Eric Early, a Republican; and Adriane Bracciale of the Peace and Freedom Party.
