BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - At the end of election night, Doug LaMalfa holds a large lead over Audrey Denney for District 1 Congressional Candidate.

Action News Now reporter Cecile Juliette spoke with LaMalfa about his success in the campaign as he makes his way toward a fourth term.

"I'm feeling really good," LaMalfa said. "It was a strong win. We had so many people come out of the woodwork, came behind me and said 'Hey Doug, how can we help?'" 

He said that it was gratifying to see the support as he considers this a different kind of campaign and election year given national dynamics. 

LaMalfa also has confidence in a Republican-controlled Senate. 

"We see a strength in Senate," he said. "That will help the President to get his confirmations for his judicial spots for the people in this cabinet."

He also said that if he is not able to get things done legislatively with the Democrats controlling the House of Representatives they can go to those agencies and work with the Senate and those in charge. 

As of 11:30 p.m. Doug LaMalfa leads Audrey Denney in the race for District 1 Congressional Representative 85,013 votes to 64,958 votes with 355 of 647 precincts reported.

December began on a beautiful note for northern California with plentiful sunshine, seasonably cool lows and warmer than average highs. Much of wednesday will be similar to today, but clouds will stream into our sky late in the day.
