Cooley takes lead in AG race

Republican Steve Cooley has erased Kamala Harris' lead and gone up by 22,817 votes as the late vote counting stands now in the state attorney general race. Hard to know how many votes are still out there. "We expect the numbers - and the lead - to fluctuate during the vote counting process over the next few weeks," says an email from Cooley consultant Kevin Spillane. "But this is positive news for the Cooley campaign."
