Results Expected: After 11:00 PM Eastern Time

U.S. Senate

Two Democrats moved on in the state's top two primary, guaranteeing a Democratic win here ---- not that there would have been much doubt even if a Republican had made it to the general election. Sen. Dianne Feinstein is seeking a 6th term. She's being challenged from the left by State Sen. Kevin de Leon. 2022: Sen. Kamala Harris (D, 1st term). Harris may be considering a presidential run in 2020.


Gov. Jerry Brown (D) cannot run due to term limits. The state's Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) is heavily favored to succeed him.

U.S. House

53 Congressional Districts: 39 Democrats | 14 Republicans

As a result of California's top-two primary system, there are no Republicans on the ballot in CA-6, CA-27 and CA-44, while there are no Democratic nominees in CA-8. Democrats have a number of targets here, as they try and increase their large advantage in the state's 53 member delegation.

Just 25 districts nationwide sent a Republican to Congress while voting for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Seven of these are in California; all are ones to watch on Tuesday.

Likely to Change Parties: 49th
Rep. Darrell Issa is retiring; his 2016 margin of victory was under 1% while Clinton won here by 7.5%. Poll numbers and fundraising have not been good for GOP nominee Diane Harkey. 

Highly Competitive: 10th25th39th45th48th, 50th
Five of these seats - all but the 50th - also voted for Clinton in 2016. The more conservative 50th district is on the list because Rep. Duncan Hunter is under indictment.

Others to Watch: 1st, 4th7th, 16th21st22nd, 24th
None of these are particularly likely to change hands but if there was to be an upset in the state it would probably come from this group. District 21 is the final GOP district won by Clinton. Interestingly, of the seven in California, it is the one that provided her with the largest margin over Trump.
