Peace and Freedom Party member runs in California Special State Senate Election

From Ballot Access News, a May 21st post:

California held a special election on May 21 to fill the vacant State Senate seat, 16th district. Three Democrats, a Republican, and a Peace & Freedom Party member ran. Here are the unofficial results. Unlike regularly-scheduled elections in California, in special elections, if anyone gets 50% of the vote, there is no second election. It appears the Republican, Andy Vidak, is winning this seat outright. The district had been represented by a Democrat who resigned his seat to take a job in the private sector.
