Election status Tuesday night

Republicans win US Senate, increase House lead; Democrats own California

By George Miller

Nationwide, the Democrat U.S. Senate has fallen to Republican Control. It appears that the Republican House majority grew and Republicans hold a majority of Governorships.

In California, it is a completely different story. Democrats dominate, Republicans are far behind. Third parties are virtually nonexistent.

All statewide races from Governor on down are in Democrat hands or Democrats leading and too close to call. Some were much closer than expected. The legislature will stay heavily Democrat.
