U.S. Rep. Salud Carbajal will once again face off against Republican challenger Justin Fareed in the November General Election, after after the two defeated Morro Bay Republican Michael Erin Woody to advance to November.
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Carbajal led with 52.6 percent of the vote, Fareed was second with 36.9 percent and Woody trailed in third with 10.5 percent.
The top two candidates in the race for the 24th District seat, regardless of party, advance to the Nov. 6 general election.
Carbajal, a Democrat and former Santa Barbara County supervisor, is seeking a second term after succeeding the retiring nine-term Democratic Rep. Lois Capps in 2016.
This is Fareed's third run for the seat, after narrowly losing to Republican Chris Mitchum in the 2014 primary election. He returned with gusto in 2016, knocking out two fellow Republicans, including longtime San Luis Obispo County Supervisor and State Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian. Fareed raised more than $2 million before he lost the 2016 General Election to Carbajal by less than 7 points.
Woody, a Morro Bay civil engineer, was not endorsed by local GOP groups and couldn't match the campaign fundraising of his Republican opponent.
The district includes San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties as well as a piece of northern Ventura County.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
In the race for the 35th Assembly District, San Luis Obispo Democrat, actor and activist Bill Ostrander is challenging incumbent Republican Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham, a private Templeton attorney.
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Cunningham led Ostrander 56.1 percent to 43.9 percent.
Both men will automatically advance to November.
