LOS ANGELES (AP) – California’s lopsided U.S. Senate is nearing a historic end and voters are pondering a long list of ballot questions that could legalize marijuana, end the death penalty and slap cigarette smokers with a $2-a-pack tax increase. Candidates were out across the state Monday making last-minute appeals for votes, including in close contests that could impact control of the U.S. House. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont Democrat, was in Los Angeles, urging support for a proposition on prescription drug costs. In the presidential race, independent polling points to a commanding edge for Hillary Clinton in the strongly Democratic state. In the Democrat-against-Democrat Senate race, state Attorney General Kamala Harris is the favorite to replace retiring Sen. Barbara Boxer.Rep. Loretta Sanchez of Orange County planned to make a final appeal for votes in downtown Los Angeles and Anaheim.
