Skelton: What Gavin Newsom and John Cox didn't talk about in their only head-to-head debate

If Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is elected governor as expected, he’ll keep building the state’s two contentious public works projects: the bullet train and twin water tunnels. But he’ll scale back both.

He’ll be more cautious, realistic and practical about the super-expensive projects than termed-out Gov. Jerry Brown.

Newsom will concentrate on completing a high-speed rail line from the San Joaquin Valley to the San Francisco Bay Area. The southern half of the ambitious project, from the valley into Los Angeles, will be delayed until the initial line proves to be financially feasible and can attract more money from taxpayers or private investors.
