Brownley Solidifies Victory Over Gorell in CA-26
Today, the Ventura County Registrar of Voters released the third vote update since election night in California’s 26th Congressional District. Congresswoman Julia Brownley has solidified her victory over Jeff Gorell and is currently ahead by 3,210 votes. Following today’s update, Gorell conceded the race. Congresswoman Brownley released the following statement:
“With today’s update, and our lead growing further, Jeff Gorell has conceded. I wish him well in his future endeavors, and greatly appreciate his service to our country and our community.
Clearly our message of fighting for the middle class, our veterans, and for advancing a women’s economic agenda, resonated with Ventura County voters, but they also made it clear that they expect Congress to work together to move our country forward. I am so proud to be able to continue to represent Ventura County in Congress, and cannot thank enough the thousands of supporters who worked so hard on our campaign to make sure our voice was heard.”
