Voters across California headed to the polls Tuesday, June 3 for the Statewide Direct Primary Election. The new top-two open primary system pitted all candidates against each other, regardless of party affiliation, with the two top finishers moving on to the General Election on November 4.
In the 25th Congressional District (which covers most of the Antelope Valley, Santa Clarita Valley and portions of Simi Valley), Tony Strickland topped the list with 14,573 votes for 29.4 percent of the vote. Steve Knight followed closely behind with 14,016 votes for 28.3 of the vote.
In the 36th Assembly District (which includes the Antelope Valley), Tom Lackey garnered 11,850 votes for 41.7% of the vote. Steve Fox was second with 9,335 for 32.9% of the vote.
Long Beach Police Chief Jim Mcdonnell topped the list for Los Angeles County Sheriff with 264,104 votes for 49.15% of the votes. Since McDonnell did not win more than 50% of the votes, he will face the second highest vote getter, Paul Tanaka, in a Nov. 4 runoff.
