Election-night returns for the seat showed none of the 16 candidates came anywhere near winning the majority needed to avoid a July 12 runoff.
Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn finished first, with 13,137 votes, or 24.66%, and Republican businessman Craig Huey finished second with 11,648 votes, or 21.87% However, Secretary of State Debra Bowen finished just 206 votes behind Huey, with 21.48%.
