In one corner you have Republican Steve Cooley, the current District Attorney for Los Angeles County. In the other is Democrat Kamala Harris, the current District Attorney for San Francisco. The two are vying to be California's next Attorney General, a spot to be vacated by Jerry Brown, who may or may not become the state's next Governor. The two will debate today at noon on the campus of UC Davis. It will be streamed live on and rebroadcast on KQED, which can be heard online here.

As the Sacramento Bee says, the two candidates "are running neck-and-neck in recent polls, with the majority of voters still looking to form opinions of the two candidates. A recent Field Poll showed Cooley leading Harris by four points, 35 percent to 31 percent."
