Democrat Ami Bera defeats GOP Rep. Dan Lungren in California's 7th Congressional District


It's over, folks: The AP has officially called the race for Democrat Ami Bera in California's 7th Congressional District. With Thursday's vote tally update, Bera now leads GOP Rep. Dan Lungren by 5,696, an insurmountable gap given how few votes (likely under 25,000) remain to be counted.

This is a tremendous win for Democrats in this blue-trending seat in the Sacramento area. It's also a huge win for Daily Kos, which endorsed Bera, a physician with strong progressive credentials. A big thanks is owed to everyone who donated to Bera when this race went into overtime, helping to ensure that all votes were properly counted. And a huge congratulations to Congressman-elect Bera!

5. This is like Christmas to see Lungren packin

Its almost like a dream--well, kinda. I didn't have Dr. Bera on my ballot, but made calls at his office. I was hoping Dr. Durston--who ran before (08-10) could have unseated Lungrens scummy face. All I can say is WOW!
