The wave stopped at California.
With many high-profile Democratic losses around the country, things weren’t looking good on Election Night — that is, until California Democrats stepped up with some major victories.
Jerry Brown will be our next governor. Gavin Newsom will be our next lieutenant governor. And Barbara Boxer will continue representing us in the Senate.
In total, we elected Democrats in eight of the nine statewide offices — and things are looking good to make it nine for nine with Democrat Kamala Harris leading Republican Steve Cooley in the attorney general contest by several thousand votes, but that race remains to be called.
CEO vanity candidates with no relevant experience, Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina, found out that Californians are smarter than they realized.
These victories — along with our victories in support of Prop. 25′s majority vote budget and over Prop. 23′s pollution expansion scheme — are thanks to the hard work of thousands of California Democrats.
But while campaigns come and go, there’s one organization that’s dedicated to helping Democrats win, 365 days a year: the California Democratic Party.

Thanks for all your hard work throughout the year. Everything we won this year, we won as California Democrats.
