Kamala Harris has pulled ahead Saturday morning by a few hundred votes, according to the latest update reported by KTLA. The "see-saw race" for California Attorney General is down to less than 500,000 provisional ballots.

Concerns are being raised by Steve Cooley's camp about Los Angeles County workers not following proper procedure for ballot counting. Campaign officials sought legal advice and complained to the county registrar, Dean Logan, who believes his workers followed the law stating, "I don’t believe there’s been anything raised at this point that is a significant concern." The’ final tally of votes is expected near the end of the month.
