Campaign 2016

Here are the election results you want to know

First, the big one. Hillary Clinton has 55.8 percent statewide to Bernie Sanders' 43.2 percent. in Los Angeles County she won by a couple more points. Clinton clinched the Democratic nomination but Sanders vows to continue campaigning. The local Sanders headquarters last night was at the Barker Hangar at Santa Monica Airport.

In the U.S. Senate race, Kamala Harris (40.3 percent) and Loretta Sanchez (18.5) will meet in a two-Democrat general election. The top Republican in the results, Def Sundheim, got 8 percent.

Here are some cherry picked results from around the area. Final results are very much still in play, with an unknown number of votes still to be counted. But these are basically 100 percent of precincts reported. For more, the statewide results are available here. The LA County election results are updated here.

In the Board of Supervisors 5th district, Antonovich deputy Kathryn Barger finished first with 29.7 percent. Who she will meet in the runoff with could still shift if there are enough uncounted ballots out there, but in second place now is Darrell Park at 15.0 percent. Bob Huff is fewer than 500 votes behind at 14.8 percent. Councilman Mitch Englander is fifth with 12.3 percent.

In the 4th supervisor district, Democrat Janice Hahn is at 47.3 percent and has a fight on her hands. Republican Steve Napolitano received 40 percent.

In the races for Congress:

in the 25th district, Republican Steve Knight got 49.1 percent to Democrat Bryan Caforio's 28.6 percent, so they will get to do it again.

Former Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra, with 45.7 percent, finished well ahead of incumbent Patty Lopez, 26.9 percent, in the 39th Assembly district in the East Valley. She is the Democrat who won unexpectedly two years ago and has not been very supported by the party.
