Challenger Michelle Chambers has garnered nearly two-thirds of the District 1 votes, flipping the table on the April primary election. Likewise, Sharif has reversed the primary outcome for District 4, leading challenger Justin A. Blakely with 53.75% of the vote, a difference of 97 votes.
In the special election to complete the unexpired term for the 33rd State Senate seat, Long Beach Councilwoman Lena Gonzalez appears to have handily defeated Cudahy Councilman Jack M.
