Adam Schiff and Steve Garvey to Head to November Runoff in California Senate Race

In the latest update on the California Senate race, Adam Schiff and Steve Garvey are set to face off in the November runoff, according to NBC Los Angeles. The primary election results have shown that Rep. Katie Porter of Irvine is trailing in third place, followed by Rep. Barbara Lee of Oakland.

The competition to fill the Senate seat left vacant by the passing of Dianne Feinstein last year has been intense, with three leading Democrats vying for the position in a state where the Democratic party holds a significant advantage over Republicans. The entry of Steve Garvey, a former baseball star and celebrity pitchman, as a Republican candidate added a new dynamic to the race. Garvey, who played for the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres, is a first-time candidate with limited policy positions.

All candidates, regardless of party affiliation, competed on the same primary ballot, with the top two vote-getters advancing to the general election in November.

The latest polling numbers from the California U.S. Senate primary show the following results:

– Adam Schiff: 36.5% (1,129,520 votes)
– Steve Garvey: 29.3% (905,975 votes)
