Seat up for election: Tuesday 21 August 2007
 

 
Democrat Laura Richardson won the 21 August 2007 run off with about 65% of the vote.

Returns from an official source.


 
On Tuesday 26 June 2007 California held a special election to fill the open U.S. House CD 37 seat vacated by the Sunday 22 April 2007 passing of Democratic Congressman Juanita Millender-McDonald.

Since no candidate received 50% of the vote + 1, a 21 August 2007 run-off election will be held between the top vote getter from each party.

  • Democrat: Laura Richardson 37.76%.
  • Republican: John M. Kanaley 7.64%.
  • Green: Daniel Abraham Brezenoff 1.21%
  • Libertarian: Herbert G. "Herb" Peters 1.08%.

Returns from an official source.


On Thursday 26 April 2007, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger called a 26 June 2007 special election to fill this vacant seat. If no candidate receives 50% of the vote + 1, a run-off election will be held on 21 August 2007, between the top vote getters from each party. The filing deadline is 14 May 2007.

  • The date of the primary election is calculated by counting back eight Tuesdays or, if the eighth Tuesday is the day of or the day following a state holiday, the ninth Tuesday preceding the day of the general ("runoff") election at which the vacancy is to be filled.

Sunday 22 April 2007: We extend our condolences to the family and friends of Democratic Congressman Juanita Millender-McDonald who passed away today at the age of 68. She had had taken a leave of absence from Congress on 18 April after being diagnosed with cancer. She was first elected in a 26 March 1996 special election re: the resignation of Congressman Walter Tucker, 15 December 1995.

18 April 2007: Congressman Juanita Millender-McDonald, 68, has been diagnosed with cancer and has been granted a 4 to 6 week leave of absence from the U.S. House.
