Bilbray Concedes to Peters in California

Rep. Brian Bilbray, R-Calif. conceded the congressional race in California's 52nd District to Democrat Scott Peters Friday, completing a Democratic near-sweep of the Golden State's competitive House districts this year.

Like Democrats in two previously called California races, Peters expanded a slim Election Day lead to an insurmountable margin over the past 10 days as the local board of elections processed uncounted mail ballots. Those votes heavily favored Democrats across California; Friday, Peters had a 3,877-vote lead over Bilbray, with 136,345 votes to the Republican's 132,468. Peters led Bilbray by around 800 votes when counting stopped on election night.

There are now three uncalled House races left over from last week. Earlier today, the Associated Press called California's 7th District for Democrat Ami Bera. Democrats will hold 38 of the state's 53 congressional seats in the next Congress, up from 34 before the election.
