The November lineup for candidates representing Agoura Hills in California's congressional and State Senate races were finalized Tuesday in the state's primary election. The top two vote-getters from each race will face each other in the fall.
As expected, incumbent Rep. Henry Waxman earned the most votes in the 33rd congressional district primary with 45.49 percent of ballots cast in his favor. He will square off against independent Bill Bloomfield, who garnered 24.59 percent of votes.
Waxman has served in congress since 1975.
One of the closest races of the evening was between incumbent State Senator Fran Pavley, a Democrat, and Republican challenger Todd Zink, who will face each other for a seat in the 27th State Senate District.
Both were the only candidates in the race, but Zink slightly edged out Pavley, earning 50.6 votes while 49.4 percent of voters cast their ballots in the incumbent's favor.
An outcome for the 50th Assembly race are too close to call.
California voters also went to the polls to vote on two state measures.
Proposition 28, which alters state term limits, won by a margin of 61.4 percent-38.6 percent. The ballot measure allows a person to serve 12 years either in the Assembly, state Senate or a combination of the two.
The previous law generally allowed people to serve three two-year terms in the Assembly and two four-year terms in the Senate. An exception was when an individual finishes less than half a term of another person who left the Legislature.
The change will only apply to legislators first elected after the measure is passed.
Proposition 29 Proposition 29 would have increased the taxes on each cigarette distributed by five cents ($1 per pack), but it fell short at the polls. It was defeated by a margin of 50.8 percent-49.2 percent.
All precincts were reporting as of Wednesday morning.
