  With less than two weeks until California’s June 5th primary, the governor’s race is all about who will come in SECOND. The top two primary finishers, regardless of political party, advance to the November general election. With first place all but set, the candidates — and outside groups — are going all-in … either to make the race competitive in November or effectively end it next month.
