District Projected Top Two # Votes % Votes

District 74 Cottie Petrie-Norris 42,822 49.2%
  Diane Dixon 23,432 26.9%

Interestingly, challenger (and former State Senator) Janet Nguyen (R) collected more votes in District 72 than incumbent Tyler Diep (R) and incumbent Bill Brough (R) will not advance to the general election in District 73.

It looks like District 74 may be a close and hard-fought race between a freshman Democrat incumbent and a Republican challenger.

  1. The only way we will get real change in the way the Government is run is to get term limits on all the selfish self serving politicians. Once they are termed out they cannot run for any elected office in the Government. I’m tired of them feeding off of the public they are elected to serve. Government was to be a PART TIME JOB NOT A CAREER.

  2. My overall comments:
    – Glad Prop 13 went down to mega defeat.
    – As a resident of the U.S. 47 Congressional District, I supported and volunteered for Amy Phan West. It is disappointing that John Briscoe, who had a major loss versus Rep. Alan Lowenthal in 2018, would not allow Amy with all her Republican support, ability and talent to lead us in 2020. I for one am fed-up with Republicans like John Briscoe who put their own vanity over Party. I will NOT vote for John Briscoe and will urge others to do the same – send a message to those who run vanity campaigns and put ego ahead of Party. Will skip voting for 47 District. With John Briscoe, the Republican Party has no chance of winning in the 47th District. Shame on John Briscoe!
    – As to the Democratic Party’s presidential election: Wash Post columnist Mark Thiessen said on Fox News: “Democrats will now have to choose between socialism and senility.”
    Get the popcorn as Communist loving Bernie Sanders pulls Early-Dementia Joe Biden more to the AOC Left!
