Under The Radar: Matsui Wins Special Election

Posted by Tim Tagaris

In the seat vacated by the passing of her husband, Congressman Bob Matsui, Doris, his wife, won a landslide special election last evening and expects to be sworn in on Thursday.

With all precincts reporting Tuesday, Matsui had nearly 72 percent of the overall vote and 88 percent among Democrats in a race marked by low turnout. She is expected to be sworn in Thursday.

Matsui will represent California's fifth congressional district in the seat held by her husband for 26 years.
