Obama, Feinstein grab easy victories in California

LOS ANGELES (AP) - President Barack Obama and Sen. Dianne Feinstein secured easy victories in California on Tuesday, reaffirming the state's prominent Democratic tilt while the race for the White House could turn either way.

The rest of the California ballot was thick with uncertainty. Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown's $6 billion-a-year tax increase struggled after a slide in the polls, and the state was filled with fiercely contested House and state legislative races that could have broader implications in Sacramento and Washington.

In the race for president and the U.S. Senate, it's fair to say the outcome was never in doubt in the nation's most populous state, home to one in eight Americans. Obama wins California's largest-in-the-nation trove of 55 electoral votes.
