Flip. Steve Knight is retired after 2 terms in the House.
Two GOP-held House seats in California fall to Democrats, Dana Rohrabacher in peril. (Los Angeles Times, 11/7/2018)
Knight, who represents Simi Valley, Santa Clarita and the Antelope Valley in the 25th Congressional District, was also vastly outspent by Hill.
In a year when record numbers of women ran for public office, Hill described the midterm election as a big step toward equal representation.

Original 10/11/2017 post, "Paul Ryan-aligned super PAC is out to save the day for Steve Knight (R-California)", starts here.
In 2014, Republican Steve Knight was first elected to Congress with 53.3% of the vote. His opponent was also a Republican, as California voters approved Proposition 14 in 2011 allowing for 'wide-open' elections. In 2016, Knight's Democratic opponent shaved 2/10s of a percentage point off the incumbent's margin of victory.

Republicans are afraid, very afraid. The Congressional Leadership Fund’s “day of action” in 17 House districts comes more than a year before the 2018 midterm elections. The effort, part of the super PAC’s plan to spend $100 million to influence House races, underscores the high stakes of upcoming House battles and marks an early push by Ryan’s allies to ensure that individual House races do not become a referendum on President Trump and his performance.
