California Democrats Pick Up Supermajority in Legislature
Although several legislative races in swing districts still are up in the air, it appears that California Democrats have picked up a supermajority in both houses of the Legislature. The two-thirds majority gives Democrats the ability to raise taxes, override vetoes by Gov. Jerry Brown (D), bypass legislative rules and deadlines, and put constitutions reforms before voters.
