“It looks like we came up just a bit short. But I am beyond grateful for all of you,” he wrote. “We reached thousands of people who will now be plugged into our electoral process for life, ready for the next cycle and the one after that. For decades to come, thousands more voices will now be heard because of all of you.”

As of Wednesday afternoon, Wilk led by over 6,000 votes, having attained an estimated 50.8% of the vote. He was unavailable for comment as of Wednesday afternoon.

For his part, Mueller went on to state that he plans to head back into the courtroom to continue his work as an immigration lawyer.

“I’m particularly looking forward to representing asylum seekers again, and to be able to help them rebuild their lives anew,” he wrote. “Most of all, I’m feeling hopeful for the future. And it feels so damn good to feel hopeful again. It’s been too long. I hope you feel it too.” 

The SD-21 race was one of two local races deemed a close contest by the state of California, the second of which is taking place between Congressman Mike Garcia, R-Santa Clarita, and Assemblywoman Christy Smith, D-Santa Clarita, for California’s 25th Congressional District (CA-25).

As of Tuesday afternoon, Garcia led by just over 400 votes. An update in the CA-25 race is expected to come from Los Angeles County on Friday.

County officials across the state of California have until the beginning of December to report their final results to the state for the presidential race, while they have until Dec. 4 to report the results for all other races. The state then has one week from that deadline to certify the results of the 2020 election.

  1. If only Orange Hitler could take a cue from Mueller and realize he has lost as well, things could start to heal across the country! Especially right now, with the Coronavirus vaccine right around the corner. We need to be able to plan exactly how we’re going to get so many millions of doses distributed if we’re ever gonna get rid of this terrible thing so we can get back some kind of normalcy, which everyone wants, except Trump! Too bad he can’t care about anything or anyone beyond his own nose! He’s always going to be known as the most despicable, absolutely the WORST president we have ever had in the history of this country, hands down! There’s no question about that. That he doesn’t care if thousands more American citizens die in his weak attempt to steal the office back any way possible shows what a total piece of 💩 he truly is, (if he hasn’t already sickeningly proven that over and over again!) DUH! 😒

    • Arn, Think of the bright side, you can ask for the Covid vaccine syringe for your Heroin/Meth/ecstasy injections! And if you quit, you should definitely start again—your withdrawals are showing!
