Lucky for California that the wave of angry white tea party-ish voters couldn't climb over the Sierra summit easily. California sewed up 5 out 6 of the heavy races with Democrats.
Jerry Brown won handily, but not before Meg Whitman spent $168M trying to defeat the iconic 70 year old. She lost by almost ten points which is enough of a statement. And she somewhat gracefully conceded last night though she was clenching her teeth.
On the other hand, Barbara Boxer was declared a winner early in the evening here by none other than Fox News, followed by the LA Times. The numbers were neck and neck for a while, but that was with few precincts reporting. Later that gap widened yet Fiorina would not concede (52-Boxer v 42- Fiorina).
This morning and even with that ten point lead by Boxer, Fiorina will still not concede saying she has to crunch the numbers.
Really, Carly? Just give it up already. Lose graciously and go home.
Here’s the rundown on CA races and props from the LA Times.
