Despite declaring victory early on November 2nd's election night, L.A. Co. DA Steve Cooley (R) still isn't the winner in the race to be California's next Attorney General. "The lead in the attorney general’s race has see-sawed between the two candidates since election night, and with considerably more than 1 million ballots remaining to count, could easily reverse again," notes the Times. This weekend, Cooley pulled ahead, taking away a snug lead enjoyed by San Francisco's Kamala Harris (D) since the wee hours of November 3. The count continues; a winner must be declared by November 30th.
