In fact, even with many votes left to count, the Democrats won the Assembly with at least 8.9 million votes – the largest margin ever recorded in a mid-term election.
As of Tuesday morning, there were still two home runs unreadable. But Democrat Xochitl Torres Small beat Republican Yvette Herrell in New Mexico when the state secretary certified the election results, leaving only an indecisive race in California.
At present, Democrats have a net gain of 39 seats in the House. According to CNN forecasts, Democrats will hold 234 seats in the House and Republicans 200.
Here is an overview of the remaining race:
21st Congressional District of California
It is one of 25 congressional districts held by the GOP and won by Hillary Clinton in 2016.
CNN had previously planned the race for Valadao, as well as other national news outlets. Voting records after the election night dramatically reduced the margin, and the latest Kern County update put Cox, a businessman, in the lead with just over 400 votes. CNN has now withdrawn its projection in the race.
Votes are always counted in the district.
