CA SD-16 Leticia Perez concedes
Leticia Perez conceded to Andy Vidak tonight. There were 1,522 Kern County ballots counted today and Leticia Perez took roughly two-thirds of them. While that sounds good, this was her best county, and she needed to take about 90% of the ballots here to have a shot. Maybe 95%. Heck, maybe all of them. She's behind by 5,352 votes and there are 6,523 ballots left in the two counties she won and roughly 1,200 left in the two she lost. So she'd have to get virtually every remaining vote in Kern and Fresno counties. Of course conceding was her most successful move last time. So maybe that's why she did it.
