Polls have closed in the pivotal primaries in California, the liberal stronghold where Democrats’ hopes of retaking Congress in November and mounting a national challenge to President Trump’s agenda hang in the balance.
It is too early to project all of the winners and losers in the state’s congressional, gubernatorial, and Senate primaries, but the Fox News Decision Desk will make those calls throughout the night as the state counts the ballots.
In early results, Fox News projects that Sen. Dianne Feinstein will place first in the state’s jungle primary — a widely expected result — but it’s too early to say whether a Republican or another Democrat will place second in the nonpartisan primary.
The secretary of state’s office said more than 2.5 million people had voted by mail as of Monday night.
Democrats need to flip 23 Republican-controlled to retake the House from the GOP in November. Out of California’s 53 House seats, Republicans hold 14 — and seven of those GOP-held districts backed Hillary Clinton in 2016.
We might lose congress tonight. Hopefully not as this would be a huge step backward…
