2018 Predictions: With 99% certainty, here’s who will win East Bay races this year

ELECTION 2018
Much will happen on the campaign trail this spring and fall leading to the June primary and November General Election. Someone will say something stupid, others won’t utter a single interesting thought. However, surprises in the form of candidates who jumped into races (or out, for that matter) can’t be known today. For all we know, the #MeToo hashtag might make its way to the East Bay and trigger a hard fought special election? C’mon, East Bay elected officials can’t all be saints, could they? But as of today, here’s your crystal ball for how this will all go down–with 99 percent certainty.
