California is known for its beaches and waves, but will it soon be known for its Red Wave after Tuesday’s election? It’s hard to believe that the Left Coast could be facing a shift to the right in some key Congressional races that could give control of Congress to the GOP. In an interview with CBS News on Saturday, Governor Gavin Newsom replied with “Yeah. Of course it does” when asked if he feels a red wave could be washing ashore in his state. In addition to the Governor’s appearance on CBS, CalMatters’ Emily Hoven gave readers two other hints to how concerned the Democrats are about these races and what’s being done to keep the districts as blue as possible. The first thing she points out is President Biden’s visit to San Diego on Thursday to campaign for Democratic Rep Mike Levin, who is up against Republican challenger Brian Maryott. Levin made the list of the DCCC’s campaigns that needed “immediate resources” to win their seats. With the second point made being the nonpartisan Cook Political Report pointing out that three of the 10 Democratic-leaning districts across the nation had shifted in the GOP’s direction (the three races noted are: CA-09 Josh Harder, CA-26 Julia Brownley, and CA-47 Katie Porter).
