San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin has been recalled, The Associated Press and San Francisco Chronicle are both projecting, and on Tuesday night, he conceded defeat.

With 45 percent of precincts reporting, 61 percent of voters are in favor of recalling Boudin. Speaking to supporters on Tuesday night, Boudin said, "This was never about one vote count. It was never about one election night party. This is a movement, not a moment in history."
