In the more closely-competed governor's race, the Democrats still enjoy a sizable advantage, as its candidate Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom earned 33.3 percent of the vote against Republican businessman John Cox's 26.2 percent. "We're engaged in an epic battle", Newsom told supporters Tuesday, calling Cox a "footsoldier in (Donald Trump's) war on California".

Republicans do not appear to have shut Democrats out of any competitive congressional races-despite the Democrats' own worries about that-boosting the latter's hopes of regaining control of the House in November.
No state offers Democrats more opportunities to gain House seats this fall than California, where more than a half-dozen Republican-held seats might be in play. The favorite of Washington Democrats will take on GOP Assemblyman Jay Webber in one of several New Jersey races Democrats view as possible pickups. If she wins, it would be Feinstein's fifth term in Congress.
