Sacramento

Special election to replace Duvall

September 23, 2009|Jean Merl

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Tuesday called a special election to fill the vacant Assembly seat of Orange County Republican Mike Duvall.

An open primary will be held Nov. 17. If no candidate receives a majority in that election, a runoff among the top vote-getters in each party will be held Jan. 12.

Duvall resigned Sept. 9 after remarks he made to a fellow legislator about sexual encounters were recorded on an open microphone during a lull in a July legislative hearing. The remarks were later broadcast on TV, prompting Duvall's abrupt resignation from the 72nd Assembly District seat.
