Any idea why she struggled? I thought she was a D rock star?

if she was from SF, she'd have a seat for life.  however, she represents the most politically un-California part of California: Orange County.  i'll let smackie fill you in on the nitty-gritty.

She is the first Democrat to EVER hold that seat.  She beat Mimi Walters to flip that seat in 2020 and was predicted to not hold the redistricted seat this year.  I grew up in that district and never thought I'd see the day that it would be flipped.  26 years after I left it remains a blue seat for back to back elections and that's something to celebrate.

Had the Dems not screwed the redistricting pooch in NY (and to a lesser extent CA), they’d have held it for sure.

Really?  How an independent commission made up of citizens outside of any control of elected officials could get any blame is the stuff I expect hear from the right.  Not you.  CA lost a seat after the census and it was always going to hurt the Dems.
Hmm, interesting
I've read very little about this and have only heard Jules and his mudslinging at NY

Just to finish my point here:

In Congress, after months of campaigning and more than $340 million spent, it appears that California Democrats and Republicans fought themselves to a standstill, with neither side unseating any of the opposing party’s vulnerable incumbents. That includes Orange County’s Katie Porter and San Diego’s Mike Levin on the Democratic side, as well as Southern California Republicans Mike Garcia, Michelle Steel, Young Kim and Ken Calvert. All will be returning to Congress.

All of that adds up to a big, monumentally expensive near wash. Republicans currently have 11 U.S. House seats in California. After this election, they’re on track to have 12, though the Modesto contest between Democratic Assemblymember Adam Gray and Republican farmer John Duarte is still too close to call.

Another undecided nailbiter: The race in Bakersfield between GOP Rep. David Valadao and Democratic Assemblymember Rudy Salas.

Democrats are in line to be down at least one seat — from 42 to 41 — but that’s because the state was docked a congressional seat after the most recent Census.

dang, was really hoping for this one

Adam Frisch just said that he's called Lauren Boebert to concede the race in CO-03.

He said an automatic recount will likely happen under state law but encouraged supporters to save fundraising $$ for gas, groceries and other causes.

Dems grab another seat

Mary Peltola, won Alaska’s only House seat

Murkowski a republican, is also returning to the senate but has the distinction of having voted for conviction in Trump’s impeachment trial.
