LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Democrat Janice Hahn has defeated Republican Craig Huey in a bitter congressional race.

Hahn, who is a member of the Los Angeles City Council, won 55 percent of the vote Tuesday to beat Huey, a local businessman.

Hahn will represent the 36th Congressional District , which runs from Venice to the beach communities south of Los Angeles International Airport.

She replaces Democrat Jane Harman, who resigned for a private job earlier this year.

    WOW, This really shows how ignorant LA voters are. If you voted for her, DONT COMPLAIN, you get what you voted for. BTW-CA problems have 0 to do with Conservatives and everything to do with the loony left like janice hahn.

      That is right. A majority liberal democratic state can’t blame it on republicans. Lib’s have destroyed California.

      You don’t have to listen now do you? Apparently you do, so, who’s zooming who?

  8. Lou says:

    another old hag, nepotism from old daddy ken who was also a disaster.

  9. Todd says:

    Get ready for more pandering to illegals, more lying, and more cluelessness. It baffles me that the people who voted for her cannot see what a waste this woman is. Just sickening.

  10. Karen says:

    While she won, she only got 55% of the vote in a very DEMOCRATIC district. That is not great if you ask me. She should have received 65%-70% of the vote in that district.

    I am over Democrats in this state. They pander to illegal aliens and everyone EXCEPT companies who want to create jobs.

  11. Jose says:

    Stupid California voters will never learn.

  12. Gary B. says:

    Cannot believe the negative people out there! They want their cake and eat it too, for nothing. The free ride is over people and it is time to start paying for the services you want!!.
