California Republican Mike Garcia declares victory in Democrat Katie Hill's former district

Republican U.S. 대표. Mike Garcia declared victory Friday in a narrow, uncalled 경주 in Southern 캘리포니아.

If Garcia’s 400-plus-vote lead holds, the state’s 25th Congressional District will be the third district in California that Republicans were able to flip back following the 2018 blue wave, according to FOX 11 Los Angeles reporter Bill Melugin.

The seat, a former Republican stronghold that spans parts of Los Angeles and Ventura counties, was flipped blue by Democrat Katie Hill in 2018 — but she eventually resigned from Congress last year over a nude photo scandal.

The state’s 21st District also appears likely to flip Republican, which would give the GOP four more seats in the state.

In California, mail-in ballots postmarked by Election Day can arrive as late as Friday and still be counted.

Smith, 그 동안에, called Garcia’s victory celebration “dangerous to the democratic process.”

“With a mere 400-vote margin and thousands of ballots outstanding, election officials are diligently working to process ballots and accurately count all outstanding votes to ensure our communities are heard, and this race remains too close to call,” Smith said in a statement, according to the Daily News.

Garcia already beat Smith once in a special election last summer.
