Democrat Christy Smith agrees to the GOP Garcia in the race for Katie Hill


Democrat Christy Smith on Monday admitted his knife defeat to Republican rival Mike Garcia, who retained his congressional headquarters north of Los Angeles in the 25th district.

Garcia won the vacant swing district in a special election in May following the resignation of MP Katie Hill in 2019. Hill stepped back after acknowledging his relationship with the campaign worker, but has since launched a political podcast and turned his memoir into a film.

Garcia, a former fighter pilot and unscrupulous supporter of President Trump, recaptured an area that the Democrats had recaptured two years ago.

Smith, a member of the State Assembly, was critical of Trump and promised to provide better health care.

“If the final votes in the contest are counted, it is clear that we will not be able to make up the difference between the 339 votes,” Smith said in a statement. “It’s not the end result we’ve fought for, but I’m proud of the strong local campaign we’ve run.”

“We have exhausted all possible possibilities and we have done everything we can to make every voice heard in the election. Nevertheless, we have come short,” Smith said.

Smith criticized Garcia when he declared victory in November, saying it was “dangerous to the democratic process”.

Garcia’s victory is another bright spot for Republicans in a highly democratic state. They lost their lineup in 2018, but with Garcia’s victory, they have now regained four in California.
