Democrat Janice Hahn Wins California Congressional Seat
On Tuesday, Janice Hahn -- a Democratic Los Angeles city council member -- defeated GOP businessman Craig Huey for California's 36th congressional district seat. Hahn secured 55% of the vote to Huey's 45%, according to the California Secretary of State's office. The seat was vacated by Rep. Jane Harman (D), who retired in February to lead a think tank. Hahn said one of the issues she will focus on will be ensuring veterans receive medical benefits.
