ABC News: Prop 19 Defeated, Boxer Projected to Hold California Senate Seat

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Proposition 19, which would have legalized recreational marijuana use, is projected to be defeated in California, where Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer is projected to win a fourth term. The country still awaits the results from the hotly-contested race for California governor.

Boxer won decisively among women, pulling an estimated 56 percent compared to 39 percent for her opponent, Carly Fiorina, according to exit poll data. The senator also was helped by voters who had a favorable view of the Democratic Party. Only 39 percent viewed the Republicans favorably.

Fiorina was endorsed by a number of prominent Republican politicians, including Sen. John McCain of Arizona, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. Former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin also endorsed Fiorina.

President Barack Obama and the first lady both made a last-minute push in support of Boxer, traveling to several campaign events in California.

The economy has been a key issue in the California races, with the state suffering enormously from the economic downtown.
