Lefty CNN contributor Sally Kohn couldn’t wait to congratulate Sandra Fluke on her big California state senate win last night:

Just one little problem: Fluke didn’t actually win. She came in second place and has to face fellow Democrat Ben Allen in a runoff this November. [Update: To clarify, the two candidates garnering the most votes advance to the general election. This post’s headline and text have been updated accordingly.]

Editor’s note: A tweet in the original version of this post has been removed because it inaccurately represented how the California system works. For the same reason, the headline, originally referring to the outcome as a “non-victory ‘victory,'” has been changed, and we have removed a quote about “Participation Trophy Politics.”
