California's 36th congressional district

The election filled the vacancy in California's 36th congressional district due to the resignation of incumbent Jane Harman, who resigned February 28, 2011 to become head of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.[3] The special primary election occurred on May 17, 2011. Democrat Janice Hahn received the highest number of votes, with Republican Craig Huey taking second place. Because no candidate received more than 50 percent of the vote in the primary, a special general election was held on July 12, 2011, between the top two vote recipients. The runoff election was won by Janice Hahn.[8]
