California Republicans are struggling to hold onto key congressional seats in this year's midterm election.

In our first roundtable podcast, reporters discuss the state's annual GOP convention, where Republicans aimed to energize their base by targeting California's sanctuary laws and repealing a recently passed gas-tax increase.

But when it comes to President Trump, the party is taking a much more delicate approach this year. There's also concern that if Republicans don’t have a gubernatorial candidate on the ballot in November, holding on to vulnerable House seats will prove difficult.
