The Sacramento County Registrar of Voters announced today that Dr. Ami Bera is leading the race for the 7th Congressional District, with a 697 vote lead over his opponent.
"I am confident after the numbers released today," said Dr. Ami Bera. "We need to continue to let the Registrar count the remaining ballots, and we know once all votes are tallied, we will win this election."
The vast majority of ballots remaining to be counted are provisional ballots. In both 2010 and 2012, those same types of ballots significantly favored Bera.
