There are seven districts in California where Clinton won a majority of the vote, but a Republican Representative won because there was no Democrat to vote for due to Democratic infighting in the primary that split the vote and made it so two Republicans were on the ballot.
Thankfully Democrats got their act together this year and those seven districts have one Democrat and one Republican pitted against each other instead of two Republicans running against each other.
No Republican made it on the ballot for the Senate either, so either Feinstein or Democratic State Senator Kevin de León will win. I'd be shocked if Feinstein lost, but even if she did we'd still have a Democrat replacing her.
The Governor's race in California is a done deal for Gavin Newsom, who actually ran ads in support of the Republican nominee in order to avoid having a head to head with Democratic Mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa. California is an overwhelmingly Democratic state and Newsom is virtually guaranteed to win unless he has a colossal scandal that somehow brings him down, something that's rather unlikely considering he's been in public office for over two decades and has been thoroughly vetted.
So California is looking really, really good for us come November. Those seven districts that Clinton won, but currently have a Republican Representative can be the key to Democrats retaking the lower chamber come November.
