CDCAN CALIFORNIA FEBRUARY 5, 2008 ELECTION UPDATE

There are two statewide elections  in California coming up : the next is the June state primary election, where all 80 members of the Assembly and a portion of the State Senate seats are up for election.  Some 34 members in both houeses are "termed out" - meaning they cannot run for re-election (though in some cases they can run for a seat in the other house).  The next statewide election after that is the November 2008 presidential election.  

Here are the latest results of the February 5, 2008 California presidential primary election that included several statewide ballot initiatives (except for one special election in the Assembly 55th District, no statewide officers or legislative seats were up for election).
