  • Voters to Choose between Vidak and Perez in 16th Senate District

    Voters in four counties will be going back to the polls Tuesday to finally settle the contentious and closely watched 16th Senate District special election battle. They're choosing between Republican farmer Andy Vidak and Democrat Leticia Perez, a Kern County supervisor, to replace former state Sen.

    Democratic Rep. Jim Costa has declared victory in his race against Republican challenger Andy Vidak. New vote tallies from Fresno County put Costa 1,200 votes ahead of Vidak — Costa was losing to Vidak Tuesday by 145 votes — and his campaign believes his lead will continue to increase as the final absentee ballots are counted. “This has been a hard-fought campaign. It appears that it is now over. I believe our 1,200-vote margin will not only stand up, but will increase as the remaining few ballots are counted,” Costa said in a statement Wednesday evening.

    A new SurveyUSA poll shows Democrat Jim Costa trailing Republican Andy Vidak by 10 points, 42% to 52%. Obama won the Fresno-based district with 60% of the vote in 2008, and Cook Political Report has the race rated "Leans Democrat."
