Election Results For California's 50th Congressional District
With approximately 67% of the precincts reporting, unofficial election results for the seat in the House of Representatives vacated by disgraced Republican Duke Cunningham have Republican Brian Bilbray holding onto the Republican seat by a narrow margin. Here are the most recent results as reported by the San Diego Union-Tribune:
U.S. REPRESENTATIVE 50TH DISTRICT - (RUN-OFF)
Counted: 331 of 500 precincts – 66.2 percent
BRIAN BILBRAY - REP 44692 49.69%

W. GRIFFITH - IND 3424 3.81%
PAUL KING - LIB 1446 1.61%
With 90% of the vote in, Bilbray's lead has actually increased slightly to just under 5,000 votes. Click here to see the updated election results from the County of San Diego's Registrar of Voters.
With 100% of the precincts counted, Bilbray leads by 4,732 votes. Although it looks good for Bilbray, anything can still happen because there are approximately 68,500 absentee / provisional ballots to be counted.
Yesterday's election was to determine who would complete the balance of Cunningham's term. Busby and Bilbray will face off again in the November general election.
