California Republicans Face More Potential Losses as Late Ballots Erase Leads

California: Five Republican candidates are losing their leads from election results that were posted last week, including US Representative Dana Rohrabacher; the race was called in his district in favor of Democrat challenger Harley Rouda. California takes a long time to count its ballots because of new laws supposedly aimed at including more voters. The laws include accepting mail-in ballots within three days of the election, following up with voters over mis-matched signatures, and the state allows voters to register on Election Day, which take more time to be processed.

Several California Republicans who appeared to have held onto their congressional seats on Election Day saw their leads narrowed — or reversed — as late ballots continued to be counted, almost uniformly helping Democrats.

In the 10th congressional district, Democrat Josh Harder had taken a lead of over 3,000 votes over Republican incumbent Jeff Denham by Saturday evening. Denham led by a slim margin on Election Day.

In the 48th district, incumbent Republican Dana Rohrabacher saw a small Election Day lead reversed decisively, and the race was called for Democrat challenger Harley Rouda.

In the 39th and 45th districts, Republicans Young Kim and Rep. Mimi Walters narrowly clung to leads that had diminished to just over 2,000 votes in both cases, with many more ballots still to be counted.

And in the 50th district, which the Associated Press called for incumbent Republican Duncan Hunter, Democrat challenger Ammar Campa-Najjar has refused to concede, citing the possibility of late counted ballots giving him a win.
