First: The best place to get an update on state legislative races is the Secretary of State's site, which lists results for every Assembly district and the 20 state Senate districts that are being contested this year.
That piece of housekeeping aside, here's a quick 1:30 a.m.-ish rundown on some of the high-profile state legislative races in the Bay Area:
- 7th District (Contra Costa County): Steve Glazer, the former mayor of Orinda elected in 2015 on a platform to outlaw BART strikes, won 55 percent of the vote and will face Republican Joseph Alexander Rubay in November. Rubay is a real estate entrepreneur from Alamo who's running on a "smaller government is better government" platform.
- 9th District (Oakland, Berkeley): In a race featuring popular East Bay progressives, former Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner of Berkeley easily outpolled current Assemblyman Sandre Swanson of Oakland, 48 to 30 percent. That result will lead to an all-blue matchup in November.
- 11th District (San Francisco): A widely watched race between two members of the city's Board of Supervisors, Scott Wiener, a moderate viewed as friendly to business and development interests, and Jane Kim, a progressive endorsed by Bernie Sanders. With 100 percent of the vote counted, Wiener held a 3,500-vote edge on Kim and led 46 percent to 44 percent. That guarantees a general election rematch.
- 14th District (Concord): With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Democrat Mae Torlakson -- wife of former state legislator and current state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson -- led Concord Mayor Tim Grayson, also a Democrat. The lead is razor-thin: 32.5 percent to 32.1 percent. Republican businesswoman Debora Allen, with 25.9 percent, appeared unlikely to make the general election.
- 16th District (Livermore): Republican Catharine Baker, who won her Assembly seat in a district that's long been friendly to Democrats, took 54 percent of the vote, while Democrat Cheryl Cook-Kallio, a Pleasanton City Council member who was the only other candidate on the ballot, took 46 percent.
- 27th District (San Jose): With 100 percent of the vote counted, former San Jose City Councilwoman Madison Nguyen appeared to easily outdistance a crowded field vying to replace termed-out Assemblywoman Nora Campos. Nguyen had racked up 37 percent to 19 percent for current City Councilman and fellow Democrat Ash Kalra.
Republican Van Le got 16 percent.
