With all 470 precincts reporting, Congresswoman Anna Eshoo emerged ahead on Tuesday night and received 57,639 votes, or 60.6 percent, while contender Dave Chapman got 28,977 votes, or 30.5 percent.
"It is enormously gratifying to have the support of so many of my new constituents, and the continuing trust of those I've been serving," Eshoo said Wednesday morning about the election returns. "I'll do everything I can to give my constituents the representation they deserve."
Chapman's campaign officials said he would be issuing a statement sometime Wednesday.
The other two candidates—William Parks and Carol Brouillet—garnered 4,550 votes, or 4.8 percent and 3,890 votes or 4.1 percent, respectively. All figures were compiled from the Secretary of State's website.
The newly drawn Congressional District 18 contains part of Eshoo's old district, which includes Mountain View, but also new areas such as Los Gatos and Campbell. The district now sprawls across three counties--San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Santa Cruz counties--after the Citizens Redistricting Commission redrew the lines.
