HUNT­ING­TON BEACH, Calif. – Demo­crat Har­ley Rouda de­clared vic­tory Satur­day over Repub­li­can U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher in a tight con­gres­sional con­test in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia.

How­ever, votes con­tinue to be counted in Or­ange County, Cal­i­for­nia’s 48th Dis­trict, and The As­so­ci­ated Press has not de­clared a win­ner in the race.

Rouda, 56, said his lead has in­creased over Rohrabacher since the elec­tion and he’s con­fi­dent he won. Rohrabacher’s cam­paign didn’t re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment. Rohrabacher, 71, is seek­ing a 16th term.
