Republican Steve Cooley conceded defeat to challenger Kamala Harris (pictured) in the battle for California attorney general, Wednesday, giving Democrats a clean sweep of statewide offices in the midterm elections that ended 23 days ago, according to a report in the Sacremento Bee.
"As California attorney general, she will actually have one of the more important positions in the entire nation in defending environmental laws," said Bill Magavern, director of Sierra Club California.
At one point in the volitile race, Harris was ahead by about 54,000 votes with less than 136,000 left to be counted.
Cooley coped with a poor GOP showing statewide -- led by gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, who lost to Jerry Brown by some 13 percentage points.
"It is unfortunate that someone who is a nonpartisan, nonpolitician could not overcome the increasingly partisan tendencies of the state, even for an office that by its nature necessitates a nonpartisan approach," Cooley said.
