Well, folks, it's here. Have a great day and good luck to everyone! 

I'll be writing more tonight, but here's some eye candy for now. (Caveats: unweighted and only VBMs how have email addresses on file were surveyed.)

Some takeways based on these results and what I've heard on the ground: 

  • CD07: Incumbent Ami Bera (D) looks fine
  • CD10: Incumbent Jeff Denham (R) and Michael Eggman (D) will go down to the wire
  • CD17: Mike Honda (R) should have retired. Ro Khanna (R) is running strong
  • CD42" It will be tight between Pete Aguilar (D) and Paul Chabot (R), but if someone gave me a dollar and I went to Vegas, it would lang 
  • CD46: Raul Ruiz is safe
  • CD49: Darrell Issa (R) is in deep trouble against Doug Applegate (D)
  • SD05: Cathleen Galgiani (D) should be fine against former Assemblymember Alan Nakanishi
  • SD11: Scott Wiener (D) and Jane Kim (D) will be close
  • SD25: Anthony Portantino (D) total toss-up against Michael Antonovich (R)
  • SD27: Henry Stern (D) looks good for Dems against Steve Fazio (R) to hold on to the Pavley seat.
  • SD29: Newcomer Josh Newman (D) seems to have the early advantage against Assemblymember Ling Ling Chang (R) in the Bob Huff seat
  • SD45: Assemblymember Steven Bradford (D) is favored against Warren Furutani in the Janice Hahn seat.
  • AD16: Catharine Baker (R) cvs. Catherine Cook-Callior (D) will be tight
  • AD35: Dawn Ortiz-Legg (D) is looking strong against Jordan Cunningham (R)
  • AD40: Abigail Medina (D) looks like she'll have an early lead over incumbent Marc Steinorth (R)
  • AD60: Sabrina Cervantes (D) is looking strong against incumbent Eric Linder (R)
  • AD65: Former Assemblymember Sharon Quirk-Silva (D) looks strong against incumbent Young Kim (R)
  • AD66: Former Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi (D) looks strong against incumbent David Hadley (R)

My current probabilities of Dems chances of attaining supermajorities:Assembly: +2 - supermarjority. Senate - +1/2, a second sead would be the supermajority.

Senate - 40% (+1-2), Assembly - 80% (+1D+4D). Congressional delegation +1-2 seats.

FPPC probes council candidate in Oakland race
sfgate.com
The state’s Fair Political Practices Commission is investigating a complaint Oakland City Council incumbent Rebecca Kaplan filed, accusing her challenger, Peggy Moore, of violating campaign disclosure requirements and sending false information to voters. Moore filed a complaint with the state commission in October, alleging that Kaplan broke campaign finance laws during her 2010 and 2014 runs for mayor, and her 2012 City Council bid. The current investigation stems from claims that Moore failed to say her campaign was behind two mass e-mails that went to Oakland voters on Aug. 26 and Sept. 8. Lee later sent out a correction saying she had not backed anyone in the city council race, and Thurmond endorsed Kaplan in October. “What we’ve heard from talking to people over the last few days is how excited people are that Peggy is endorsed by Obama,” said Erica Kwiatkowski, a campaign adviser.
