28th Senate District Analysis

While not as high profile as the 25th Congressional District’s Tuesday race, the 28th State Senate District also had a vacancy needing to be filled.

State Senator Jeff Stone had previously resigned when offered a job in the Trump Administration.

In his wake, the 28th Senatorial District became a battleground for Republican Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez, and Democratic Board of Education trustee Elizabeth Romero.

As of this moment, Assemblywoman Melendez is ahead in the binary race with 55.89% of the vote. The next update will be given by the registrar on Friday.

Turnout hovers at just under 35% for the senatorial district. Its unlikely that Romero will be able to make up the gap as last minute mail-in ballots make it to the registrar.

Expect this seat to remain in Republican hands.
