Although ABC News has yet to project a winner in California’s 39th Congressional District, Democratic Rep. Gil Cisneros has conceded to Republican challenger Young Kim, who leads Cisneros by 1.2 percentage points. The Associated Press has projected Kim as the winner, too. A GOP victory in the 39th District would mark 2020’s second Republican win over a Democratic incumbent in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, joining California’s 48th District. Both of these suburban districts voted for Clinton in 2016, so unlike some Republican takeovers this cycle, these seats weren’t low-hanging fruit for the GOP.
