California: Republicans loses State Senate seat, depriving them of the blocking 1/3rd vote from the Newman recall

In June, the GOP managed to recall and remove State Senator Josh Newman (D) over a gas tax issue, as well as a desire to deprive the Democrats of a 2/3rds Supermajority in the Senate. Thanks to the General election results, Democrats have regained their Supermajority.

A similar thing happened in Wisconsin in 2012, when the Democrats ousted a state Senator in the  recalls in June and gain a majority in the state Senate only to lose it in the November election.
