Scott Shafer talked with the San Francisco Chronicle political analyst and intrepid blogger Carla Marinucci for tonight’s California Report. Here’s the full interview, which covered the political dynamics affecting the Boxer – Fiorina race, the “wheels coming off” the Whitman campaign, the latest Field Poll showing Boxer and Jerry Brown with a lot of momentum, and more.

Some highlights: Marinucci doesn’t think Whitman and Fiorina like each other, and she thinks the Whitman campaign is having a negative effect on Fiorina.
