Inside Politics: Obama’s press conference to be full one after 8 months
Question of the Day
President Obama will hold his first full-fledged press conference in more than eight months Wednesday, the White House announced.
Mr. Obama’s last full press conference was on March 6. He has held shorter press conferences in the months since, taking a few questions from reporters in sessions that typically don’t last more than 15 or 20 minutes.
The media has been criticizing Mr. Obama for failing to take questions in a formal press conference setting.
GOP’s poor showing worries party strategists
LOS ANGELES — Tuesday’s elections strengthened the political grip of Democrats in California, and Republicans in the Legislature are in danger of becoming mere spectators at the statehouse.
Democrats hold the governorship and every other statewide office, and they gained even more ground in congressional and legislative races.
In the Legislature, the party secured a supermajority in one, and possibly both, chambers as votes continue to be counted.
Meanwhile, Republican registration has dipped below 30 percent.
Republicans searching for a new direction after Mitt Romney’s defeat will question why President Obama rolled up more than 70 percent of the Hispanic and Asian vote, and 9 of 10 votes among blacks.
Demographic shifts have shaped California elections for years, lifting Democrats while Republicans have been pushed to the margins in many areas.
