Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom secured the first of two slots in the November election to replace Jerry Brown as California’s governor while Republican businessman John Cox was running a strong second on Tuesday night.
The race is one of hundreds of contests across the state that could solidify Democratic dominance and reshape the fight for control of the US Congress.
Democrats need to gain 23 districts nationally to flip the majority in the House of Representatives.

Newsom, the former San Francisco mayor, was the first candidate to announce a bid for governor more than three years ago and was strongly favored for the top slot. He leaned heavily on his decision in 2004 to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in San Francisco, touching off years of debate over gay marriage in California and around the country.  See the rest of the story at Business Insider
