Conway, a former GOP leader of the California State Assembly, was facing off against Democrat Lourin Hubbard, who works for California’s Department of Water Resources.

The two candidates competed in a six-way primary in April to fill the vacant seat in a district covering portions of Fresno and Tulare counties, from Clovis to areas south of Visalia. Conway led in the vote count in April, but no candidate received more than 50% of the vote to win the seat outright.

The 22nd Congressional District was dismantled by the state’s nonpartisan redistricting commission. Most of the district will now be split between the new 20th and 21st districts. Conway will serve in office through January, when the district will cease to exist after the new Congress is sworn in.
