There was no shortage of fascinating candidates and subplots in the 17 congressional races that involved Los Angeles County — either partly or wholly — during Tuesday’s statewide primary.
The top-two candidates from each race will advance to November’s general election.
Here’s how those races for the U.S. House of Representatives shook out, as of 3:16 a.m. Wednesday, June 8, according to the California Secretary of State’s website:
District 23: Incumbent Rep. Jay Obernolte had about 59% of the vote in his bid to represent a new district that encompasses the desert between the Antelope Valley and the Nevada border (only grazing L.A. County). The Republican’s two Democratic challengers were closer to each other than to Obernolte. Community organizer Derek Marshall had about 22% and Victorville Councilwoman Blanca Gomez had about 19%.
District 26: Democratic Rep. Julia Brownley, 69, of Westlake Village, had 55.5% of the vote in her bid to continue serving the Ventura County district she’s represented since 2012; the district includes a wisp of L.A. County. Republican ex-federal prosecutor Matt Jacobs of Westlake Village had about 37%. The other three challengers were in the single digits.
District 27: Nearly two years after Rep. Mike Garcia’s razor thin but stunning margin over Democrat Christy Smith for the 25th Congressional seat in northern L.A. County and Ventura County, the Republican had nearly 50% of the vote in the newly redrawn 27th Dstrict. Smith had about 34%. The other four candidates were in single digits. Democrat John Quaye Quartey conceded.
District 28: Democratic Rep. Judy Chu, who has represented parts of the San Gabriel Valley since 2013, had about 61% of the vote as she seeks to return to Congress in this redrawn district that includes Alhambra, Monterey Park, Rosemead and Arcadia. Republican Wes Hallman had 30.5%. The other two candidates were in single digits.
District 29: In this redrawn San Fernando Valley District that includes Sylmar, Pacoima and Panorama City, Democratic Rep. Tony Cárdenas, who’s  served in the House since 2013, had a large lead over his four challengers, including three Republicans. Tony Cárdenas had 57% of the vote while felllow Democrat Angelica Dueñas — former president of the Sun Valley neighborhood council who sought this seat in 2018 and 2020 — had about 18%. GOP newcomer Margarita Maria Carranza had about 10%, while her fellow Republicans, Andy Miranda and Rudy Melendez, each had 7.4%.
District 30: Incumbent Burbank/Glendale stalwart Rep. Adam Schiff, among the nation’s best-known and most influential Democrats, once again crushed his competition, receiving about 60% of the vote. Republican civil rights attorney Ronda Kennedy was in the lead for the second runoff spot, with 10.1% of the vote, but Democrat Maebe A. Girl, a Silver Lake Neighborhood Council member, wasn’t far behind, with 9.7%. The next closest was Republican law officer Patrick Lee Gipson, who had 7.6%, followed by Republican Johnny J. Nalbandian, with 6.4%. The other four candidates were even further back.
District 31: In this tweaked San Gabriel Valley district that includes West Covina, El Monte, Azusa and San Dimas, veteran Democratic Rep. Grace Napolitano had about 53% of the vote, with Republican Daniel Bocic Martinez having a healthy hold on second, with about 40%. Democrat Rocco Anthony De Luca was in single digits.
District 32: A half-dozen hopefuls couldn’t approach the vote total of high-profile Sherman Oaks Rep. Brad Sherman, who had about 53% of the vote in this San Fernando Valley-centric district that includes Bel Air, Canoga Park, Chatsworth, Encino, Malibu, and Northridge. Republican business owner Lucie Lapointe Volotzky had about 22%. Republican writer Melissa Toomim was well back, with about 10%, and the other four candidates were in single digits.
District 34: Democratic Rep. Jimmy Gomez had 52% of the vote as he aims to return to the House to represent this retooled district that includes Boyle Heights, Koreatown and Chinatown. Democrat David Kim, who lost to Gomez in 2020 by 6 points, had 36% and GOP newcomer Clifton Rio Torrado VonBuck, a small business owner, had about 13%.
District 35: Democratic Rep. Norma Torres, who has represented the 35th since 2015, had about 55% of the vote. Republicans Mike Cargile, an Army veteran, had about 23%, and Republican Dr. Rafael Carcamo had about 12%. The other two candidates in the race to represent this district — which includes Chino, Fontana, Montclair, Ontario and Pomona — were in single digits.
District 36: South Bay icon Rep. Ted Lieu, a Democrat who’s grown his national profile since sparring with then-President Trump, outpaced his seven challengers with 64% of the vote. Republicans Joe Collins had 15%. Everyone else was in single digits. The district ranges from Santa Monica down the coast to the Palos Verdes Peninsula communities.
District 37: A new member of Congress is guaranteed from this central L.A. district, with state Democratic Sen. Sydney Kamlager having 42% of the vote, and Democrats Jan Perry and Daniel Lee having 18.5% and 16%, respectively. The other four candidates were all in single digits.
District 38: Rep. Linda Sánchez, a familiar figure among Democrats, had 56% of the vote as she attempts to win an 11th term in Congress, representing a solidly blue district that’s mostly in east Los Angeles County, plus a slice of Orange County. Walnut Mayor Eric Ching, a Republican who has won election in his city three times, had 32% while fellow Republican and business owner Ion “John” Sarega, had about 12%.
District 42: In one of the region’s most fascinating races, a “Battle of Garcias” shook out in an unexpected way — with one of those Garcias ending up far back in third place. Rising Democratic star and Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia had about 45% of the vote, while Republican John Briscoe — a longtime elected board member of the Ocean View School District in Huntington Beach, who ran and lost against current 47th District Rep. Alan Lowenthal in 2020 — was in second with 29%. Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, D-Bell Gardens, who was thought to be a co-favorite along with the Long Beach mayor with whom she shares a surname, had 13%. The other five candidates were in single digits. The new 42nd Congressional District, post-redistricting, essentially combines the current 40th and 47th congressional districts. Reps. Lucille Roybal-Allard, D-Boyle Heights, represents the 40th; both she and Lowenthal plan to retire after the current term.
District 43: Iconic Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters, who has represented this district since 2012, trounced the competition in this primary, gaining 71.5% of the vote. Republican Omar Navarro, who Waters thumped the previous three elections, was again far back, with 13%. But he’s well-positioned to go to the runoff, as the other two candidates were in single digits. The district spans from LAX to Inglewood to Gardena and Compton and parts of Torrance.
District 44: In this district — which sweeps from the Port of L.A. to Carson and Paramount, and on through to South Gate — incumbent Democratic Rep. Nanette Barragán had 65% of the vote while Republican newcomer and minister Paul Jones had 27%. Democrat Morris Griffin, who’s been on and off the ballot since 2016, had about 8%.
District 45: GOP Rep. Michelle Steel had 49% of the vote in her bid for a second term in Congress, though in a newly drawn district that forecasters have said was a toss-up. Indeed, Democrat Jay Chen, who runs a real estate firm and is an intelligence officer in the Navy reserves, wasn’t too far behind, with 41%. That’s a large enough gap between the third candidate — Republican Long Pham, an engineer from Fountain Valley, who had 9.5% — to make him Steel’s likely runoff opponent. The C-shaped district starts in Fountain Valley, curves north to pick up Cerritos in Los Angeles County and rounds out in Placentia.
