Republican Concedes Attorney General's Race

Kevin Spillane is with the Cooley campaign.  It was he - not the candidate, who announced the concession to reporters on a media call. Spillane said Democrat Harris was too far ahead for the outcome to change.  A victory for Harris, the San Francisco District Attorney, means Democrats have swept the statewide elected offices.  Spillane says that probably contributed to Cooley's loss:

"The reality is that when you're a down ballot candidate, you're simply a sailboat on a rather large ocean and you're at the mercy of the wave."

Cooley, the Los Angeles County District Attorney, has actually received more votes than the top-of-the ticket Republican, Meg Whitman.   Harris has not yet declared victory, saying she'll wait until the end of November, the deadline for counties to finish counting ballots.
