Gavin Newsom Elected CA Governor, Dianne Feinstein Defeats Kevin DeLeon for US Senate Seat

(KNX 1070) -- Gavin Newsom is the next governor of California succeeding his retiring party mate Jerry Brown, while Dianne Feinstein defeated fellow Democrat challenger Kevin DeLeon to keep her U.S. Senate seat.  

Control of the House will not come down to Southern California after all, but with Democrats projected to take over control of the chamber, the margin of that majority remains to be seen. 

In conceding the race to Newsom, Republican John Cox says he's proud of his campaign and the messages he conveyed. The San Diego businessman said he feels the Republican Party is not going away in California and needs to be the voice of people who are hurting in the state.

It will be a divided Congress, as Republicans will maintain and expand their control of the US Senate.
