The latest on California politics and government

Twenty-eight California congressional or legislative races Tuesday pitted candidates of the same party against each other, a development made possible by the state's new top two primary system.

U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman easily beat congressional colleague Howard Berman in one of the most closely watched same-party races featuring two Democratic candidates.

Eight California congressional races featured same-party candidates - six pitting Democrats against each other, two Republicans.

The Assembly decided 18 same-party races - 11 Democrat, seven Republican.
