Fog delays election returns, but incumbents Schiff, Gatto and Liu hold on to their leads

Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake) is maintaining his lead over Glendale school board member Greg Krikorian, with the incumbent garnering 15,340 votes to his Republican challenger’s 13,209.

But with just one precinct reporting, the vote tallies could still take a wild swing, according to the Los Angeles County registrar-recorder.

With eight precincts reporting in the 25th District for state Senate, Sen. Carol Liu (D-La Canada Flintridge) is holding on to her lead, 37,884 votes to the 29,687 garnered by her Republican challenger Gilbert Gonzales, according to the California Secretary of State.

And with just one precinct reporting, U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) is keeping his wide lead over his opponent, Phil Jennerjahn, 29,148 votes to 12,017.

Fog is delaying flight operations as county officials try transport ballots to their facility in Norwalk, according to a statement issued by the county registrar-recorder. The fog, the office warned, may delay “election reporting for some areas of the county.”
