There are more than 540,000 votes left to count statewide. The anointed Democrats did well in all races except State Controller. Republican candidates took some far northern and central California counties. Here is how the results look as of June 15th.

Governor Newsom (56.2%) will face Republican Brian Dahle of rural Lassen County (17.5%).

Lt. Gov: Kounalakis (52.9%) will face Republican Angela E. Underwood Jacobs (19.8%)

Secretary  of State Shirley Weber (59.2%) will face Republican Rob Bernosky (18.7%)

Controller: The endorsed Democrat, African American Malia Cohen received just 22.7% of the vote, winning races only in coastal counties from Mendocino to Santa Cruz, plus Santa Clara and Alameda County. The top voter getter in this race is Republican Lanhee Chen (37.0%), a conservative policy wonk and professor at the Hoover Institute and Stanford. However, three Democrat candidates and a Green candidate split out 40.3% of the vote – voters for these candidates are unlikely to turn to a Republican in November.

Treasurer: Fiona Ma (57.7%) will face Republican Jack M. Guerrero (21.7%)

Attorney General: Rob Bonta (54.7%) looks to be facing Republican Nathan Hochman (18.2%), but another Republican, Eric Early is close at 16%.

Insurance Commissioner: Ricardo Lara has (36.2%); but the second position is pending between three Republican candidates: Robert Howell and Mark Levine have 18%; Greg Conlon has 16%.

Superintendent of Public Instruction: Incumbent Tony K. Thurmond garnered 46.1 %. It’s a close race for the #2 slot: between Lance Ray Christensen (11.8%), Berkeley High alum and teacher Ainye Long (11.1%) and George Yang (11%).

US Senate: Alex Padilla (54.4%/55.3%) faces Republican Mark Meuser (14.8/21.9%), for both the next full term and the remainder of the current term.

State Board of Equalization, Alameda County District 2: Sally J. Lieber (53.1%) will face Republican Peter Coe Verbica (27.8%)
