After the 2008 election, some lamented that Californians cared more about chickens than gays. Prop 2 won, placing restrictions on how some farm animals were kept, while Prop 8 also won -- it banned gay marriage. You can't sum it up so black and white, but one thing is for sure: this state can be progressive when it comes to animal issues.

One person who has a consistent record for animal issues is Assemblymember Pedro Nava of Santa Barbara. Regular LAist readers may remember him from earlier this month in an article about his dog devocalization bill. Nava is running for Attorney General as a Democrat and has released this cute and whacky campaign ad touting all his animal rights work.
