There are literally still millions of ballots left to count across the state, so it could be days before we know who the new mayors will be in Los Angeles, Oakland and San Jose, and which party, if any, flipped House seats in California. That will affect the eventual House majority, which looks to be going to the Republicans, but not by much more than the current, slim Democratic majority. We could know soon whether the Democrats retain control of the Senate, if they hold on to Nevada.
