Update on CA Senate Race

“This race is really close. It’s probably going to be a long night,” predicts Fiorina campaign press secretary Andrea Saul to Battle ’10.

Saul says that 3.6 million absentee ballots have been cast. While Democrats have cast more absentee ballots by four percentage points, Saul points out that Democrats have a 14-point advantage in voter registration over Republicans.
