It has been a rough night for the Democratic Party as Hillary Clinton appears to be losing to Donald Trump. But here in Irvine the election results are mixed.
Republican City Council Woman Christina Shea is leading a large pack of candidates for the Irvine City Council but the runner-up is Democrat Melissa Fox. The top two candidates will win. Fox is way ahead of the third place candidate, Shea’s ally Anthony Kuo.
Shea’s other City Council ally, Steven Choi, is handily winning in the race for the 68th Assembly District, over Sean Jay Panahi. And State Senator John Moorlach is also leading in his reelection race in the 37th State Senate District.
U.S. Rep. Mimi Walters, who also represents the Irvine area, is trouncing her Democratic opponent, Ron Varasteh, in the 45th Congressional District.
