Gov. Newsom, VP Harris pick sides for Giants-Dodgers playoff series

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — It’s Northern California versus Southern California.

The San Francisco Giants will take on their rival down south in the Los Angeles Angeles Dodgers starting Friday night in Game 1 of the National League Division Series.
