Top 3 candidates for California governor make final appearances

- Voters will see 27 Candidates on the ballot when polls open at 7am.

But most attention is on three candidates.

The front runner - lieutenant governor Gavin Newsom - visiting the Good Day LA set this morning. The democrat and former mayor of San Francisco focusing his campaign on housing and homelessness in the state.

“At the end of the day it’s a supply demand imbalance. We are 49th out of 50th in per capita housing units. Only Utah develops less housing. As it relates to homelessness, the state of California needs to intervene,” said Newsom.

The top two candidates in the primary, regardless of party affiliation, will move on to the November general election.

Polls have Newsom in first - so the race for second is on.

On one side- Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa. He’s rallying with his supporters in Whittier tonight. The former Los Angeles mayor says his record is the best resume for the job of governor.

“During the middle of a recession I put people to work,” said Villaraigosa.

And on the Republican side - John Cox, a San Diego County businessman, endorsed by president trump - met with his campaign team in Corona today. Housing affordability was also a talking point for him.

“We are going to change this regime in Sacramento. So people of this state can afford their wonderful lifestyle here in California,” said Cox.

A record number of Californians registered to vote but we’ll see who they want to govern them tomorrow.

Polls open at 7am. We will have you covered all day on air and online.
