At last check, Kamala Harris was up 17,000 votes over Steve Cooley, but with more than 6.6 million ballots counted that's only a 0.2 percent lead. And with nearly 2 million ballots to go, it's anyone's guess how this thing will turn out - and how long it might take.The Cooley people say they have an advantage because many of the uncounted ballots are in their strongholds, like Orange and San Diego counties. But the Harris people note the high number of uncounted ballots in L.A. County, where she has done well. (LA Weekly, SF Chronicle)
*As of this afternoon, the lead was about 12,000.
**In doing some back-of-the-envelope calculating, The Weekly's Gene Maddaus likes Harris's chances.
