Dead state senator reelected in Long Beach

Jenny Oropeza, who died after a long illness last month, was reelected to another term in the state Senate on Tuesday. With more than half of the vote counted, voters in Oropeza's Long Beach district gave her more than 54% percent of the vote. Republican John Stammreich trailed with 40% of the vote.

If the results hold, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will call a special election to replace Oropeza.

Oropeza missed last month's budget vote as she recovered from a blood clot in her abdomen. She had also fought a long battle with cancer.
