It was a day of good news and bad news for law professors on Tuesday’s ballot.

Katie Porter, a professor at the University of California, Irvine School of Law and protégé of U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, appears to have narrowly lost her closely watched bid to unseat Republican incumbent Mimi Walters for a congressional seat. The historically red Southern California district voted for Hillary Clinton two years ago, and progressives had hoped to flip the seat. Porter had yet to concede Wednesday afternoon, though vote counts had Walters with 52 percent and Porter with 48 percent. (Mail-in ballots were still being counted Wednesday morning.)
