The Express is calling the Oakland City Council At-Large race for incumbent Rebecca Kaplan. With 71 percent of precincts reporting, Kaplan has an insurmountable lead over challenger Ignacio De La Fuente, 45.5 percent to 30.5 percent. Kaplan holds an even larger lead in ranked-choice voting. Her victory means that progressives likely will gain control of the city council, and De La Fuente's loss could spell the end of his twenty-year career in Oakland politics.
