California Governor Sets Special Election
Gov. Gavin Newsom set March 3, 2020, as the date for the special elections to fill the vacant 25th Congressional District seat and 28th Senate District seat.
The 25th Congressional District seat became vacant when former Rep. Katie Hill resigned amid allegations that she violated House ethics rules.
The 28th Senate District seat became vacant when former Sen. Jeff Stone resigned to accept an appointment to become the U.S. Department of Labor’s western regional director.
A runoff election will be held on May 12 if no candidate wins a majority.
March 3 is also the scheduled date for California’s 2020 presidential primary election.
