MOORLACH UPDATE — Fourteen! — November 9, 2016

Last evening was one for the record books.

On the Federal level, allow me to congratulate Donald Trump and Mike Pence (see MOORLACH UPDATE — Tim Clark — April 13, 2016 april 13, 2016 john moorlach).

On the State Senate level, we held our own and remain at fourteen Republican Senators. We’re right on the cusp. If we lose one, we are in the Super-Minority.

The first piece below is from today’s OC Register website update on the Orange County State Senate races. The 37th District is entirely in Orange County. So, my victory is assured, pending the Registrar of Voters obtaining approval of the results from the Board of Supervisors. A sixteen-point lead is better than the thirteen-point spread my predecessor achieved four years ago.

The 29th Senate District is in three counties, but the Orange County portion provides a 4,000 vote lead for Assemblywoman Ling Ling Chang. San Bernardino County shows a 1,500 vote spread in her favor. But, she is down 1,400 votes in Los Angeles County. Let’s hope the late absentee and provisional ballots do not change the outcome.

The second piece is from the Orange County Breeze. It provides a little more color on the local Legislative races.

The Associated Press, via KTVN Channel 2 in Reno, put out a listing of the results for all of the odd numbered Senate seats (the even number Districts are up in 2018) in the third piece below.

Republicans currently hold, until 2018, Districts 4, 8, 12, 14, 16, 28,34, 36 and 38 (9). Republican incumbents were successfully re-elected in Districts 1, 23, 37 (3).

Two open seats, previously held by Republicans, are District 21 and 29 (2). The Republican candidates appear to have prevailed. That gets us to 14!

Districts 25 and 27 had two strong Republican candidates, including Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich, that provided hope to move the caucus total up to 15 or 16. Regretfully, this did not occur.

Ling Ling Chang barely leads Josh Newman in local state-level election results

State Senate District 29 is watched as a possible flip to enable the Democratic Party to reach a super-majority in the California State Senate. It was formerly represented by Republican Bob Huff, who is termed out.

The District sprawls across three counties: Los Angeles, Orange, and San Bernardino.

Republican Ling Ling Chang and Democrat Josh Newman ran for the open seat.

With 98.7% (520 of 527) precincts partially reporting as of Nov. 9, 2016, at 4:41 a.m., Republican Ling Ling Chang narrowly leads Democrat Josh Newman by 1.8% — 107,922 votes to 103,999.

Newman has received 52% of the vote in the area of the District that falls in Los Angeles County.

In contrast, Chang has received 51.2% in Orange County and 53.9% in San Bernardino County.

Quirk-Silva looking to take back Assembly seat

Assembly District 65 pitted Sharon Quirk-Silva against Young Kim, who defeated Quirk-Silva two years ago.

With all precincts at least partially reporting, Quirk-Silva leads with 50.8% of the vote. Kim has 49.2%.

Other local Assembly results

Travis Allen has received 59% of the vote in District 72 and looks to be comfortably in the lead.

Matthew Harper has received 56.7% of the vote in District 74. He also looks to be declared the winner.

Other local State Senate results

With 58% of the votes, John Moorlach is well ahead of challenger Ari Grayson with 42%.

Results reported are based on information published by the California Secretary of State.
