    Anthony Pugno (Prop 8 dude) went on to lose an assembly race again!

    We looking set to pick up 4 house seats

    Super-majorities in both chambers! The last time Dems had a super trifecta was all the way back in 1883 or so!

    It's not looking so hot for Galgiani, she's down a considerable margin and don't think the remaining ballots will be enough to push her into the lead. Still at this point it would just be icing on the cake. This race was like the only bright spot for the R's as I think it was the only tossup/swing/target race that R's are looking to win.

        I mean we do have more votes to count, but it's looking real good right now!
        Keep and eye on AD32 and SD65, those are the two seats we need to win (we're posting narrow leads in both right now)

        Most reports I've seen say that we've all but won in AD 65

          26D - 14R according to to the wiki.

          also the last time both chambers were under 2/3rd control was with Republicans in 1933

      •  It looks like it is going to be 54 seats (1+ / 0-)

        (right at the 2/3 supermajority) with both AD32 and AD65 included.  The Assembly gain would be 2 seats (from 52 to 54).  I think lordpet8 was referring to a 4 seat U.S. House gain.  

        •  yes I was, thanks (1+ / 0-)
