California’s secretary of state says two Republican state Assemblymen will face off in June to fill one of two vacancies in the state Senate.
Secretary of State Alex Padilla says final results from last month’s special primary election show Brian Dahle of Bieber and Kevin Kiley of Rocklin are the top two vote-getters in Senate District 1, which stretches from Oregon to Lake Tahoe.
They will compete in the June 4 special general election to fill the vacancy created when Republican Ted Gaines won a Board of Equalization seat in November.
The final results show Long Beach City Councilwoman Lena Gonzalez will face Republican Cudahy Councilman Jack Guerrero in June to fill a southeast Los Angeles County vacancy. Ricardo Lara resigned the 33rd Senate District seat after becoming insurance commissioner.
