Hahn Holds California Seat for Democrats : Roll Call Politics

Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn won Tuesday’s surprisingly competitive special election for California’s 36th district, keeping the seat in Democratic hands.

Hahn defeated Republican small-businessman Craig Huey, who outperformed expectations by just making it to the runoff in the solidly Democratic district. Hahn took 55 percent of the vote with all precincts reporting by early Wednesday, compared with 45 percent for Huey, according to the California secretary of state’s office.
