Democrats concede loss of U.S. congressional seat in California special election

POLITICS MAY 12, 2020 / 6:09 AM / UPDATED AN HOUR AGO

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrats lost a seat in the U.S. Congress as Christy Smith, a California state legislator, conceded on Wednesday in a special election in suburban Los Angeles to Mike Garcia, a former Navy fighter pilot endorsed by President Donald Trump.

“While it’s critical that we ensure every vote is counted and recorded, we believe that the current tally shows Mike Garcia is the likely victor in the May 12th special election. As such, I’d like to congratulate him,” Smith said in a statement.

Garcia jumped to a significant early lead on Tuesday night over Smith in California’s 25th district, the California secretary of state’s office said. It put Garcia’s share of the vote at 56 percent to 44 percent for Smith.

Votes are still being tallied in the election, which was largely a mail-in event because of the coronavirus pandemic. However, Smith’s statement made clear she did not expect to overcome the 12-point deficit.

1. Cenk and folks like him succeeded.

They wanted to trash her as much as possible to weaken her for a GOP win and they succeeded.
