Cooley hangs on to lead in AG race count

Republican Steve Cooley's lead in the race for attorney general stands at 19,189 in this this morning's update by the Secretary of State. He had been a little higher over the weekend. Reps for Democrat Kamala Harris caution there is still a lot of ballots to count and say Cooley's lead is the result of votes coming in from counties he won, but not yet from Los Angeles and others with a lot of Harris votes.
