LOS ANGELES – Democrats Gil Cisneros captured a Republican was held in the US House in southern California on Saturday, where a democratic route was settled where the party raised six congressional seats in the state.
In what had been the last undefined House Competition in California, Cisneros Republican Young Kim hit the state’s 39th district council. The Cisneros victory cement a fantastic political change that will leave a vast stretch of Los Angeles metropolitan area under democratic control in the house.
With Kim’s defeat, four republican house houses completely or partially districts in Orange County, California, a once nationally known GOP fortress southeast of Los Angeles, will have been replaced in a vote for the Democratic Column. The change means that the county ̵
1; Richard Nixon’s birthplace and seat of his presidential library – will only get democrats representing their Washington residents next year.
The Democrats also recently retrieved the last Republican palace based in Los Angeles County, when Democrat Katie Hill expelled Republican republics. Steve Knight.
With other gains, the Republicans also lost a place in the rural Central Valley – Democrats will hold a 45-8 edge in California’s American households next year.
The District was one of seven targeted Democrats in California after Hillary Clinton carried them in the presidential 2016.
Cisneros, 47, a $ 266 million lottery jackpot winner, had been locked in close competition with Kim in a district that grew increasingly different. It is about equally distributed between Republicans, Democrats and Independents, as with Asians, Hispanics, and White.
Kim, 55, a former state legislature, worked for several years to withdraw the republican republic Ed Royce, who left the seat and had approved her.
In a country where President Donald Trump is unpopular, Kim tried to create a distance with the White House on trade and healthcare. Her immigrant background – and gender – made her apparent in a political party whose leaders in Washington are mostly older white men.
“I’m another type of candidate,” she said.
It was not enough. Democratic ads portrayed her as a trumpet misery, keen to perform her agenda.
Cisneros, a first candidate, described his interest in Congress as an extension of his time in the military – he said it was about public service. He runs a charity foundation with his wife.
In the hospital he spoke of his mother who went without insurance for 16 years. “It should not happen in this country,” he said.
While the election gave mixed results around the United States, California’s reputation confirmed as a democratic fortress.
Democrats are about to stick to every state office – again. The party holds a large majority in the legislature’s two chambers – and a 3.7 million advantage in voter registration.
There was not even a Republican in the vote for the US Senate.
