"Congressman Jerry McNerney has won re-election in California's 11th Congressional District," said Doug Greven, Campaign Manager, McNerney for Congress. "With the vast majority of votes tallied, the results are clear. Congressman McNerney now has an insurmountable lead."
California's 11th Congressional District includes Alameda, Contra Costa, San Joaquin and Santa Clara Counties. With today's results, all four counties have reported nearly all outstanding votes and Congressman Jerry McNerney now maintains an insurmountable lead of 1,681 votes.
Included below is further information with an analysis of outstanding ballots to be counted:
In San Joaquin County, approximately 6,500 provisional ballots remain to be counted. Currently, McNerney is reporting 44.34 % of the vote and Harmer 48.61% in San Joaquin County. Applying these same trends to the remaining ballots, Harmer could gain at most only 278 votes.
In Contra Costa County, approximately 4,500 vote-by-mail and provisional ballots remain to be counted. Currently, McNerney is reporting 48.45 % of the vote and Harmer 48.66%. Applying these same trends to the remaining ballots, Harmer could gain at most 9 votes from Contra Costa County.
In Alameda County, approximately 200 ballots remain at most to be counted. Currently, McNerney is reporting 56.29% of the vote and Harmer 40.82% in Alameda County. Given that Alameda County has overwhelming broken for McNerney, he is expected to gain votes from these remaining ballots.

Chet: I get it, you do not like Harmer, but how can anyone get so excited about McNerney? You actually used the word, "fantastic"...I feel sorry for you if the election of McNerney is actually so important to you that it is "fantastic"...What a depressing life you must lead.

Fantastic, I am not so sure. Half the people of his district did not want Jerry McNerney re-elected, but ever so slightly more of the voters did. I am not sure how either side can claim victory, let alone a "fantatsic" victory.

Will you still think it fantastic when Jerry votes to do away with the mortgage interest deduction to pay for Obama's record deficits?
