A populist wave inspired by former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is pushing the California Democratic Party leftward. Led by the California Nurses Association, self-proclaimed “Berniecrats” have disrupted the party’s conventions, won Senate passage of a single-payer health care bill, and are being courted by 2018 candidates. Their stance contrasts with Governor Jerry Brown's philosophy of "paddle a little to the left and a little to the right." Capital Public Radio’s Ben Bradford asked Brown about this ascending wing of the party, in the second part of their interview in China.
