Carl DeMaio Barely Leads Scott Peters in Tight Race for California House Seat


Gay Republican Carl DeMaio (pictured) leads Democrat Scott Peters in the 52nd District Congressional race in California by a slim lead of 752 votes, but 180,000 provisional ballots still need to be counted.

DeMaio, a former member of the San Diego City Council, failed to win the support of the LGBT community and has been troubled by claims of sexual harassment from two former campaign aides.
