A Democratic candidate for California governor made a campaign stop in San Luis Obispo Wednesday.
Gavin Newsom, the current lieutenant governor and former mayor of San Francisco stopped by the San Luis Obispo City Library for a meet-and-greet.
Newsom touched on a variety of issues, including health care, the closure of Diablo Canyon, and climate change.
He expressed support for Senate Bill 54, saying he’s proud that California is a sanctuary state.
Newsom also talked about a housing crisis in the state of California.
"We simply aren’t building enough housing, so it’s a production issue, we’re taking a lot of existing housing stock and turning it down," Newsom said. "So it’s a preservation issue, and too many people who have housing are feeling the pressure of rent increases."
The lieutenant governor is running against 15 other candidates in the June 5 primary.
A debate for governor candidates has been set for Sunday, however, Newsom told KSBY he won’t be participating.
