The 2018 California Gubernatorial Forum was held Sunday in San Diego. It featured four candidates running for California governor.

Republican Travis Allen, a member of the California State Assembly, Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa, the former Mayor of Los Angeles, Democrat Delaine Eastin, the former State Superintendent of Public Instruction and Republican John Cox, a business executive, all attended the forum.

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom declined to participate.
