It’s a California district that Obama won by 30 points. California is hopeless as far as electing conservatives. Hell they have a tough time getting the odd RINO a victory here or there.

This is a district that Obummer won by 31% in 2008, and Jane Harmon won it by 25% last fall. If the Dems have lost >20% in this district, Obama and the rest are toast next fall.

THIS IS GREAT NEWS!!!

Depends.

With only 2% of the vote in, that is not many votes separating them. Sometimes it depends which districts came in so far. He could close the gap. It is not over yet. However, dealing with these nasty Democrats, you gotta win by 10 or 20% UNDISPUTEDLY otherwise they will contest it and win in in the courts, OR last minute ballot-box stuff.

Those posted votes have to be mail-in ballots. If the tallies were closer, I’d have some hope, but it does not look good for Huey. However, on the positive side, if Huey loses by a single digit margin, that is quite an accomplishment for him personally and an indication that Obama is not loved as much as thinks he is!!! Hey, Huey gave all he had. It is the California and national Republican party that are the slackers, just as they are in New York. And....with the cave-in to Obama by Pubbie Senate leader, Mitch McConnell, with John Boehner in tow, I would say the current Republican Party is not long for this world!!!

Bob Dornan (R-Calif.), a flamboyant conservative, represented that district in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. After the Democrats in the legislature gerrymandered him out of it, he moved to Orange County and won a seat there.

I doubt it. This is a very liberal district. If there is ever a chance though, it’s in a special election. Keeping it in single digits wouldn’t be too bad but I’m not all about “moral” victories. But single digits may be a sign of attitude at least.

There are conservatives in Calif once you get east of the SF, Marin, and LA areas.

There hasn’t been a serious candidate(R) in the last decade. Huey is the first since Kuykendall(R) won the district in 1998. Susan Brooks(R) came very close in the two elections before that. And Harman was a strong candidate with unlimited funds. Things are changing.

George Soros has made getting his kind of people into Sec’y of State slots a very high priority, as that official is in a key position to influence how closely contested voting situations become resolved.

They’re trucking in the emergency “pre-filled out” Hahn ballots.

This can take awhile with the LA freeway congestion.

“There are conservatives in Calif once you get east of the SF, Marin, and LA areas.”

I know that the Central Valley is predominantly Republican, but I think all you Pubbies are crazy for staying. Farmers in the San Joaquin Valley are being victimized for the benefit of lizards and every Republican is holding him/herself up to ridicule for staying in a dying situation.

I wear a Fog City Diner watch but for my money, I hope a fence is erected around San Francisco to prevent all those loons from leaving.

BTW, what’s the status of the proposed new stadium for the A’s?

With vote-by-mail ballots counted and seven of 261 precincts reporting, Hahn had collected 54.25 percent of the vote to Huey’s 45.76 percent, out of 39,612 votes cast. The early count reflects vote by mail ballots returned through Saturday.

Polling locations closed at 8 p.m. in the Venice-to-San Pedro district, which favors Democrats in registration by 18 percent.

Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder-County Clerk Dean Logan said the next poll updates are expected beginning around 10 p.m.

I was fond of Original Joe's in Kieu Kim San, but after returning found that taking trolly and a stroll for a plate of pasta in that district wasn't a real good idea.

BTW, some of the loons have already migrated.....here.

20%

Not looking good, but it could still be pulled off depending if Venice and other super liberal parts are in these numbers. If it is, then Huey can pull it off.

There is a link on the county website to a set of maps that have been posted showing “polling place closings”. I don’t know if that is any indication of which votes are counted first, but it did show Venice/MDR and San Pedro “closing*” first while El Segundo, Manhattan and Hermosa were among the last to close. The 4th update, which is what you get if you click the link now, shows all polling places closed.

It ain’t over til’ it’s over. :-)

*”closing” - I assume they mean when all of the administrative work has been completed as some did not “close” until well past the 8PM time.

That would tend to indicate that Venice/MDR and San Pedro would be counted first, I suppose. That would bode well for Huey right now. However, the closing of the others later could indicate funny business.

Looks like it’s over to me. Oh, well, let’s head after Weiner’s old seat! That’s only D+5, while this is D+12. A seven point swing from this race could have pulled it off for Huey. Let’s see it if it works in NY.

Never mind if some of us own substantial land and businesses here... And California is a big state that some fools try to paint with the same brush...

So just run away...

I can only conclude you don’t have much so running away doesn’t really matter that much to you.

And BTW, the owner of this site is a Californian and its located in California so maybe you should stop posting here... You wouldn’t want to get any of the “crap” on you...

Almost 67,000 voted Republican in the district back in November 2010, more than enough to have put Huey over the top but they just didn't show up despite a month to cast their ballots.

If there's a positive take away, the margin was only 9% which seems low given the registration advantage, name recognition, financial backing, union support, family dynasty, voting patterns and other factors all in Hahn's favor.

Good for Craig Huey but a moral victory won't cast House votes.

The district has gone Dem 3 to 1, or better, in recent cycles.
