Steve Westly, the California State Controller and Democrat running for governor, will be in Chico Feb. 1.
Westly and State Treasurer Phil Angeleides are the announced candidates in the Democratic primary. The winner gets the right to defeat A-S in November.
I don't know much about Westly, and I hope to find out just where he falls on the progressive spectrum.
