Assemblyman Rich Gordon cruised to an easy victory against Republican challenger Chengzhi "George" Yang. With all precincts reporting Nov. 6, Mr. Gordon took 70 percent of the vote to Yang's 30 percent in the race for newly drawn Assembly District 24.
Gordon, a Menlo Park resident, now represents District 21, which includes Menlo Park, Atherton, Woodside, Portola Valley, East Palo Alto, and Palo Alto. But with redistricting, the same area will become part of District 24.
The district has been reshaped to encompass areas including Mountain View, Sunnyvale, and most of the San Mateo County coastside from El Granada south.
