The election results for Tuesday's special election to replace former Rep. Jane Harman's Southern California House seat continue to roll in as attention turns to who will be in the runoff, rather than who will win the seat.

There was no expected winner from the field of 16 candidates for yesterday's elections, but the two frontrunners, LA City Councilwoman Janice Hahn and Secretary of State Debra Bowen, both Democrats, were expected to gain the most votes and head to a runoff on July 12.

However, election-night returns showed Republican businessman Craig Huey in second place with 21.87% of the vote, a little more than 200 votes ahead of Bowen, at 21.48%. Hahn led the tally with 24.66% of the votes counted.

County officials said the results are not official, as nearly 10,000 remaining ballots have yet to be counted.



Craig Gillespie directed this true story about "the most daring rescue mission in the history of the U.S. Coast Guard.”
