Update: Moorlach wins, Glazer advances to run-off for CA Senate

capitolFrontUpdate: 8 am, March 18, 2015: With 100 percent of the precincts in, according to the Secretary of State, John Moorlach won outright in Senate District 37, with 51.4 percent of the vote. In Senate District 7, the outcome continued as outlined below, with Steve Glazer winning, getting 32.8 percent, and Susan Bonilla in second place, with 24.9 percent. Because neither got a majority, a runoff will be held between the two on May 19.

It’s too early to tell in two special elections for the California Senate. CalWatchdog.com will have more extensive coverage tomorrow. But here are the early returns:

For state Senator for the 37th District, according to the Orange County Registrar of Voters, John Moorlach leads with 49.7 percent and Don Wagner with 44.8 percent; both are Republicans. Two other candidates split the rest.

For state Senator for the 7th District, according to the California Secretary of State, Steve Glazer leads with 30.5 percent, followed by a near tie between Susan Bonilla at 24.6 percent and Joan Buchanan at 22.8 percent; all three are Democrats. Two others candidates split the rest.

In both races, if no candidate gets 50-percent-plus one votes, a runoff will be held May 19.

Looks like it will be a long night for the candidates and their supporters.

In the third state Senate election, for the 21st District, Republican Sharon Runner is unopposed.
