Democrat Kamala Harris has gained significant ground on Republican Steve Cooley in the attorney general's race thanks to Alameda County voters. The latest numbers show Harris trails Cooley by 9,555 votes, down from about 43,000 votes yesterday. And it appears that Alameda County is the reason.

The addition of about 85,000 late absentee and provisional ballots counted over the past several days in Alameda County show that Harris picked up 34,035 more votes than Cooley countywide. She's now leading him in the county 271,964 votes to 105,851.

This race could go on for two more weeks as counties throughout California tabulate their late absentee and provisional ballots. Alameda County, however, is nearly done.
