A news article today from the publisher of The Santa Cruz Sentinel, The San Jose Mercury News, and many other local newspapers, speaks about the positions of gubernatorial candidates on higher education in California. It completely ignores Delaine Eastin although she is tied in recent polls with one candidate that they did talk about.
