US Congress voting results
Despite high-profile mudslinging that came to typify this race, both candidates felt they ran strong campaigns.
DeMaio described the campaign as "very negative" and "painful" as he addressed members of the media Wednesday morning.
He said his campaign will have monitors involved in the ballot count at the registrar while he takes part in the freshman orientation preparation for newly elected members of Congress.
"It’s been a really exhausting campaign, what’s a few more days, ” DeMaio said of the ballot count.

Six days before June’s primary election, DeMaio reported a break-in at his campaign headquarters. Computer screens were shattered, cords and cables were cut, water was poured over the electronics and DeMaio’s campaign strategy book disappeared, the candidate said.
In a taping of NBC 7’s “Politically Speaking” in October, Peters said he felt as if he’d initially been cast as the perpetrator of the break-in, though DeMaio later accused former staffer Todd Bosnich.
In a CNN report on Oct. 10, Bosnich said he was the victim of unwelcome touching and repeated sexual harassment by DeMaio while working for him on the congressional campaign and during his 2012 mayoral run. Bosnich described an alleged incident where he was called to DeMaio’s office and the candidate exposed himself.
DeMaio denied the allegations, saying his former employee had “manufactured a story” to cover for a plagiarism incident.
Over the weekend, another former campaign staffer, Justin Harper, told KPBS DeMaio had exposed himself in a restroom on July 10, an accusation the DeMaio campaign called an “outrageous lie.”
On Sunday, protesters outside DeMaio's campaign headquarters demanded an apology for sexist emails they say he sent.
