Though California Rep. David Valadao (R-Hanford/ Bakersfield) had been projected as the winner, the state’s marathon post-election day counting process appears to be producing a different outcome. Though the counting is still not complete and likely won’t be until early next week, Democratic challenger T.J. Cox has taken a 438-vote lead over the Congressman as a new batch of Kern County votes were reported last night. It is difficult to say how many mail, overseas, and provisional votes remain since the 21st is split among four counties and the domain totals report in aggregate, but this trend will likely hold giving Democrats their seventh conversion victory in California alone.
