Votes are still being counted in close races but California Democrats may have gained three or four Assembly seats.

They fell short of the 2/3 majority needed to pass budgets without Republican help in the Senate.

One Democratic Assembly seat may have fallen to Republican Danny Gilmore.

The fact that there were switches in party control is notable in a state where no legislative or congressional seats changed hands last time around.
