Far-Left Democrat Rep. Karen Bass Wins Los Angeles Mayoral Race Even Though Rick Caruso Was in the Lead on Election Day After Polls Closed
Far-left Democrat Rep. Karen Bass ‘won’ the Los Angeles Mayoral race and will replace Eric Garcetti.
Bass defeated billionaire Rick Caruso 53.1% to 46.9%, according to AP.
Caruso was in the lead on Election Day after the polls closed but Karen Bass magically took the lead a week later and ‘won’ the race.
Another post-Election Day Democrat miracle!
Karen Bass will be the next mayor of Los Angeles, according to projections by the Associated Press.
The AP called the race in Bass’s favor around 3:35 p.m. Wednesday.
Bass currently leads Rick Caruso by 46,578 votes with 74% of ballots counted.
Bass, who represents the California’s 37th Congressional District, will become the first woman to be elected mayor of Los Angeles and the second Black person to hold the position.
One week ago when polls closed, Caruso carried an overnight lead in the race to replace incumbent Mayor Eric Garcetti, who is termed out and is awaiting confirmation as ambassador to India.
Since then, Bass has outpaced Caruso, quickly closing the gap before ultimately overtaking him.
