LOS ANGELES ā€” Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff had two victories in the California U.S. Senate race Tuesday.

Schiff advanced to the general election in November. He also managed to boost Republican Steve Garvey into the race with him and box out Democrat Katie Porter.

The twin wins put Schiff on a glide path to the Senate.

While Garvey was able to consolidate most of the Republican vote for himself, Schiff split the Democratic vote with two other viable contenders ā€” Reps. Porter and Barbara Lee. The state is so blue that Republicans havenā€™t won statewide since 2006.
