According to the Real Clear Politics electoral count, Rep. Mike Garcia (R-Santa Clarita) has defeated state Assemblywoman Christy Smith (D-Newhall). With 338,523 votes being tabulated, Mr. Garcia’s lead stands at 405 votes.
The number of remaining votes, and from where they are coming, appears not plentiful enough to overturn Rep. Garcia’s slight edge. Our rudimentary estimate suggests he will win the final vote count by approximately 375 votes. If this proves true, the Garcia seat would become the 211th for the GOP.
