SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Democrat Sydney Kamlager has won a special election for a Los Angeles-area seat in the California Assembly. Los Angeles County announced Wednesday evening an estimated 7,900 ballots were still uncounted from the Tuesday election. But Kamlager’s 17,000 votes already tallied assure she will have more than half the vote when results are certified. Kamlager will replace former Assemblyman Sebastian Ridley-Thomas, who resigned last year. Thousands of ballots are still uncounted in the other two special elections held Thursday. Those races will likely advance to runoffs between the top-two finishers. Nearly 500 votes separate second and third place in the race to replace former Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra. Roughly 2,700 separate second and third in the race to replace former Assemblyman Matt Dababneh.
