The race for California Assembly District 7 race between incumbent Democratic Ken Cooley and Republican Joshua Hoover remains a virtual tie.

The latest vote tallies posted by the California Secretary of State, Cooley has 50.3 percent with 25,968 votes to Hoover's 25,625 for 49.7 percent. 

Cooley, a former Rancho Cordova City Council member, has served in the California Assembly for five terms starting in December 2012. Hoover is a staff member for Assemblymember Kevin Kiley and a Trustee of the Folsom Cordova Unified School District.

Cooley's position had been considered vulnerable, and the Democratic Party has dedicated substantial resources to preserving the seat. In addition, Hoover benefitted from an extensive TV commercial advertisement from independent expenditure committees attacking Cooley. 

Interestingly, the Democratic-leaning Sacramento See Editorial Board endorsed Hoover.
