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.

The playoff series has become a statewide affair with local and state leaders chiming in to root for their California team.

Gov. Gavin Newsom started a friendly war of words with a tweet Thursday — showing support for the city he used to be the mayor in.

Newsom’s rooting interest for the Giants prompted a response from Senator Alex Padilla who is a Los Angeles native.

Newsom proposed a bet with Padilla.

Former San Francisco District Attorney and current Vice President Kamala Harris chimed on the action. Her husband Douglas Emhoff is a Dodgers fan, which could result in a tricky situation for their household.

Harris made it clear which California team she is sticking with.
