Katie Hill, a political newcomer and Democrat, has proven to be a strong opponent to Republican incumbent Steve Knight for California’s 25th District.
As of 2:20 AM eastern time, with 31 percent of precincts reporting, here are the results for the race, per the New York Times:
Katie Hill (D): 50.1% (36,280 votes total)
Steve Knight (R): 49.9% (36,164 votes total)
Knight and Sinema are currently separated by around fifty votes. The close race is surprising, but not entirely unaccounted for. In the days leading up to the election, RealClearPolitics billed the traditionally red district as a tossup.
