California candidates rally voters in final midterm push

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Californians will help determine which party controls the U.S. House and choose a successor for the state’s longest serving governor in the midterm election.

Candidates are making their final pitches Sunday as campaign volunteers furiously work to make sure their voters show up at the polls or postmark ballots.

More than 3 million people have already voted by mail.

Orange County is seeing an unusual amount of attention from Democrats as the party works to flip Republican-held U.S. House seats.

In the battle for governor, Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and businessman John Cox are rallying with state and federal candidates.

Voters are being inundated by advertisements on California’s 11 ballot measures. About $367 million has been raised in support or opposition of the campaigns.
