News Too Real April 6, 2022: In episode 7 of season 4, producer host Julia Dudley Najieb reviews the California special elections from April 5.

California US House Primary District 22: Representing the Central Valley area, Connie Conway has advanced to a June runoff in a California special election to fill a U.S. House seat left vacant after Republican Rep. Devin Nunes resigned to lead former President Donald Trump's media company. Although the race for the second runoff spot is still too early to call, so far Lourin Hubbard is holding a steady second, advancing him to the run-off June 7.

A native Californian raised on the west side of Fresno, in Solano County, Lori D. Wilson captured 13,850 votes, 97.19% of the valid ballots that were counted. Write-in candidate and Republican Erik Elness of Brentwood earned 401 votes (2.81%). Only 15,963 registered voters participated, which is 10.68% of the 149,420 registered voters in the county.

Wilson replaces Jim Frazier as the 11th Assembly District representative. Frazier resigned in December. He had been an Assembly member since November 2012.

Wilson will also have to compete in the June 7 primary against a Vacaville resident and longtime legislative advocate, Jenny Callison, 37.
