Three Congressional Incumbents On Central, South Coasts Easily Sail Through June Primary


Three incumbent members of Congress who represent parts of the Central and South Coasts easily made it through the June primary.

24th District Congressman Salud Carbajal of Santa Barbara received about 53% of the votes tallied for his district. He’ll face Republican Justin Fareed in November, who received about 37% of the vote.

In the 25th District, which includes a slice of eastern Ventura County, Republican Steve Knight had a strong showing against three Democratic challengers, garnering about 53% of the vote. It’s unclear who he will face in November, with preliminary numbers showing Katie Hill with 20% of the vote, and Bryan Caforio with 18%.

And, in the 26th District, Democratic incumbent Julia Brownley easily secured a spot for the November election, with 53% of the vote. She’ll face actor Antonio Sabato, Junior who emerged from a field of three challengers to qualify for the fall election.
