Newsom Tracker: Wager with Atlanta, then debate with Maldonado

Mayor Gavin Newsom raised the Giants flag outside of City Hall on Wednesday, and today he is making a friendly wager with Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed on the playoff series. But the fun and games will end when the mayor travels to Sunnyvale to participate in the first debate with his Republican opponent for lieutenant governor, Abel Maldonado, hosted by the Silicon Valley Leadership Group. Then he is off to the game.
