    I have worked with two:  Filner (SD) who was fabulous and Norby (Fullerton) who is a slimy jerk and hopefully Quirk-Silva will succeed.

    I'm also waiting for results in CA-52 which has Peters ahead of Bilbray, but won't be fully counted until next week I read. That would be sweet. And of course, there's Ami Bera who we are all hoping succeeds against Lungren.

    I don't think I left any races out of the mix that depend on further counting, but I may have. Along with Ca-36 (Bono Mack losing... yeah!), the about two congressional races are the ones I was (am) watching.

      won't get fully counted for a while, which is why it's all an asterisk right now. Heck, Los Angeles County takes two additional weeks to count all its later ballots.

      oops. I hope the gate wasn't too expensive.

      •  Has CA still only counted 71% of ballots, per CNN? (0+ / 0-)

        That's what the CNN site says, for the Presidential race, as of Sun Nov 11:  "Est 71% In"

        I'm eager to know if CA makes Rmoney fall below 47.50000%!  :-)

        Thanks for any links to the latest tally.

        •  well, that's the idea (0+ / 0-)

          California usually counts about 30% of its ballots in the canvasses after election day. They have until 28 days after the election to certify the final tally. If you want to keep checking in, just find the latest at

          oops. I hope the gate wasn't too expensive.

          •  Does (0+ / 0-)

            The only relevant link I find is this one:
            It states the results-to-date, but it does NOT state what % of ballots have been counted. (100% of precincts are partially reporting.)

            Candidate                Votes        Percent
            Barack Obama (DEM)    6,054,201    59.3%
            Mitt Romney (REP)        3,919,102    38.4%
            Thomas Hoefling (AI)    29,489    0.3%
            Jill Stein (GRN)            63,758    0.6%
            Gary Johnson (LIB)    107,821    1.1%
            Roseanne Barr (P&F)    40,336    0.4%

    •  As you know, cany, Sharon Q-S's district (1+ / 0-)

      substantially overlapped the southern half of mine (except that she had Buena Park and I had north-central Anaheim.  She had a great campaign -- and earned the Speaker's notice (for which many of us had been screaming for months) just in time.

      I've written about Norby here elsewhere.  I won't link, but it's searchable.
