JoinCalifornia has been updated to reflect these lead changes. As a reminder, during the 2010 Primary Election, Vargas took the lead 18 days after the election. In the 2012 General Election, Bill Berryhill led Cathleen Galgiani in the vote count for 15 days after the election, while Ron Smith led Steve Fox in the vote count for 27 days, only falling behind and eventually losing on December 2nd. After the 1980 General Election, Assemblyman Adrian C. Fondse led for 63 days (including a month of service in the Assembly), before the Assembly voted to accept a final vote count that put Patrick Johnston ahead.
