Little matters less on election night than early results; since the statewide count is still at about 36% I won't bother with numbers. But in many races we know what happened. Here's a quick look at the post-election world:
Will this finally end Tom Campbell's quest to get conservative Republicans to vote for him? Fiorina looks as if she'll top Campbell and Chuck DeVore combined. Among Democrats, blogger Mickey Kaus' run-for-office phase loses 3 to 1 — to Brian Quintana.
Those polls showing Whitman way, way, way ahead of Steve Poizner? They were right.
Janice Hahn will win Los Angeles County, but Newsom will win most everywhere else. Maldonado might be over 50% by the time it's over.
Cooley could end up beating John Eastman even in Orange County. As for Rocky Delgadillo's alleged political career, he'll finish the night looking up at Harris, of course — and Chris Kelly and Ted Lieu and Alberto Torrico and Pedro Nava.
