Election Day Statewide Races

In statewide races today, voters will choose a new governor between Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and Republican businessman John Cox. And among California’s propositions, the hottest contests have been over repealing the recent gas tax increase (Prop 6), easing restrictions on rent control (Prop 10). More than 3.67 million Californians already mailed in their ballots as of Sunday.
