And when I say “clings,” I really mean it. From Carolyn Lochhead at the Chronicle:

In the gerrymander-gone-awry California 11th congressional district, sprawling across four counties from Gilroy to Lodi, incumbent Democrat Jerry McNerney is ahead 121 votes to GOP challenger David Harmer:

McNerney 82,124 votes, 47.5%

Harmer 82,003 votes 47.4%

A third party spoiler, Tracy’s David Christensen of the conservative American Independent Party, has 8,809 or 5.1%

That’s with all precincts reporting as of 5:41 a.m. It would appear that Harmer would have won had Christensen not been in the race.
