All eyes have been on five hotly contested Congressional races in California where Democrats hoped to create a blue wave. While it was impossible to call them on Tuesday night, here's who came out ahead and which races have yet to be called.

California’s 10th Congressional District   

As of now, Rep. Jeff Denham (R) has 50.6 percent of the vote while Democratic challenger Josh Harder has 49.4 percent of the vote.

The race has yet to be called because of the number of absentee, provisional and conditional ballots that still have to be counted, SF Gate reported.

California’s 25th Congressional District

Democratic darling Katie Hill ousted Rep. Steve Knight (R) in CA-25. She won with 51.3 percent of the vote, compared to Knight's 48.7 percent.

California’s 39th Congressional District 

Republican Young Kim will now replace Rep. Ed Royce (R), who is retiring. Kim won with 51.3 percent of the vote. Her Democratic opponent, Gil Cisneros, had 48.7 percent of the vote.

Kim is now the first Korean-American woman elected to Congress.

We're still waiting on the results from this race. Rep. Mimi Walters (R) is currently winning with 51.7 percent of the vote, compared to her opponent, Katie Porter, who had 48.3 percent of the vote.

This is another race that is too close to call, although Walters is confident in her lead.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R), who announced his retirement earlier this year, is now being replaced by Democrat Mike Levin. Levin beat out Republican opponent Diane Harkey with 53.5 percent of the vote. Harkey came in with 46.5 percent. a bonus toss up, is California's 48th Congressional District.
