CalWatchdog Morning Read – November 9

Good morning. As you know, Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States in what felt like another mini Republican wave election.

In fact, Republicans seemed to have fought off a Democratic supermajority in the state Legislature Tuesday night, according to early returns.

With a supermajority, Democrats would be able to increase taxes, override gubernatorial vetoes and send measures to the ballot without Republican support. Democrats need two seats in the Assembly and one in the Senate in order to hold a supermajority — both chambers are a must.

But as of just before 2 a.m., Republicans looked like they would hold their seats in the Senate.
