California Democrat Harley Rouda defeats longtime Rep. Dana Rohrabacher

Washington (CNN)Democrat Harley Rouda has defeated California Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher with a current lead of about 17,000 votes, securing another seat for the new Democratic majority in the US House of Representatives, CNN projects.

Rohrabacher, a conservative stalwart, represented California's 48th Congressional District for nearly 30 years. He had been trailing his Democratic challenger in the week following the midterm elections, raising eyebrows about whether or not he could keep his long-held seat.

But by Sunday, Rouda, a progressive former realtor and businessman, had pulled ahead of Rohrabacher with 53.2% of the vote compared to Rohrabacher's 46.8%.

During the race, Rouda capitalized on disdain for President Donald Trump among the district's many college-educated voters, something that will likely work to his advantage as his party is gearing up to use their new power in Washington to challenge many of the President's policies and actions.

1. I predict Dana Rohrbacher's problems are just about to begin....He can expect to be interviewed by

....the special counsel and his ties to Russia and part of the GOP collusion will be further exposed.

2. Rohrbacher was always a snotty and proudly ignorant Rep.

I was honored to boo him as his convertible drove down Crown Valley Pkwy in Laguna Niguel’s Xmas parade a few years back.
