Michael Rubio's abrupt resignation from his 16th District state Senate seat last month has Kern County Republicans suddenly filled with hope over the prospect -- perhaps a longshot, perhaps not -- of pulling one away from the Democrats' side of the ledger and possibly denying them a supermajority in the state senate.
Republican strategist Stan Harper and Bakersfield City Councilman Russell Johnson, who has been mentioned as a possible candidate, join Editorial Page Editor Robert Price, the host of Tuesday's "Californian Radio," to talk about the special election to fill that seat.
