California Primary Results: Latest Updates and Information

Adam Schiff and Steve Garvey will face off in November for a U.S. Senate seat in California after primary results.

In a tight race from Tuesday's primary election in California, Representative Adam Schiff and former Major League Baseball player Steve Garvey emerged as the top contenders for a U.S. Senate seat in November. The seat was previously held by Dianne Feinstein for over three decades before her passing last year.

With nearly half of the ballots counted, Schiff, a Democrat, secured about 33 percent of the vote, while Garvey, a Republican, followed closely with 32 percent. Representative Katie Porter and Representative Barbara Lee trailed behind with 14 percent and 7 percent respectively. The results were similar in the special primary to fill the remaining Senate term until the end of the year.

California's unique election system places all candidates in the same primary, regardless of party affiliation, with the top two advancing to the general election. Despite the possibility of an intraparty battle between Democrats, Garvey's name recognition and Schiff's strategic advertising helped solidify their positions as the top contenders for the Senate seat.

The race between Schiff and Garvey has garnered significant attention, with their contrasting backgrounds and political affiliations adding an intriguing dynamic to the upcoming election. As voters eagerly await the final results, the battle for the Senate seat promises to be a closely watched and highly contested affair.
