Turf Wars: The Race for Attorney General Remains Uncalled
The race for California's Attorney General remains what the Secretary of State's Election site is labeling a "close contest." How close? With 100% of the precincts reporting, Democrat Kamala Harris and Republican Steve Cooley are separated by 0.1%.
Neither Harris or Cooley has conceded the race--in fact, on Tuesday night, Cooley called the win in his favor fairly early on, and from his camp an "e-mail was sent at one in the morning for a celebratory morning news conference," that he had to back out of, according to NBCLA. That's because about an hour after it went out, Harris overtook Cooley in the polls by a slim margin--a lead she has retained as the ballots were counted.
Cooley may also be shamed by having lost to San Franciscan Harris where he lives: "She crushed the L.A. District Attorney on his home turf, leading in L.A. County by 14 percentage points."
