There were very few surprises yesterday as voters went to the polls. Jerry Brown is California governor once more. Gavin Newsom will take over as lieutenant governor and the other incumbents in the major state offices were re-elected.

One race that is still too close to call is the battle for state attorney general.

San Francisco Democrat Kamala Harris holds a slight lead over L.A. Republican Steve Cooley – both are currently county DAs.
