A blue wave came to Southern California on November 6th. We swung SoCal left! Mike Levin won in CA-49 against the Republican candidate. Katie Hill beat the Republican incumbent in CA-25.

Furthermore, while the outcome is not certain yet in CA-39, CA-45, and CA-48, analyses by the The Cook Political Report’s Dave Wasserman and fivethirtyeight.com see a high probability of a Democratic sweep. Election officials still have thousands of ballots to count. These outstanding ballots usually favor Democrats.

Specifically, Harley Rouda’s lead in CA-48 grows larger every day. He is now ahead by 3.6%. He declared himself the winner today.

In addition, although Katie Porter in CA-45 and Gil Cisneros in CA-39 both currently trail, by how much decreases daily. As of Friday evening, Katie Porter is now behind by barely 1%, and Gil Cisneros’ deficit is only 1.6%.

We might not find out the fate of these races for a couple weeks, but it looks like Democrats will prevail.

All in all, despite the initial calls on election night, we had a blue wave here in Southern California. Just how big is yet to be determined!
