California congressional race narrows to a two-way contest after primary recount

A recount in the congressional race in California’s 16th Congressional District resulted in Democrat Evan Low winning second place by just a handful of votes over Joe Simitian, advancing to a two-way general election against former San José Mayor Sam Liccardo. The recount was requested by a voter, drawing criticism from Low who accused them of using “dirty tricks.” Simitian conceded graciously, expressing disappointment but accepting the result. The district heavily leans Democratic, making the general election between Low and Liccardo crucial for determining the new representative as incumbent Anna Eshoo is not seeking re-election.
