Gov. Brown blasts Trump on climate change, state lawmakers weigh in on hundreds of bills by week’s end

State Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) devoted his first online ad in the 2018 race to depicting Trump as anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-healthcare and a climate change denier. Lara urged voters to support his campaign for insurance commissioner so he can protect California from Trump’s reach.

Lara is one of three Democrats who has officially declared an intention to run for insurance commissioner, joining Assembly member Henry Perea and Paul Song, a Santa Monica radiation oncologist and former leader of the California progressive group Courage Campaign.
