Tulare conservative Connie Conway leads the 22nd Congressional District race with Lourin Hubbard, a progressive Democrat, second.

Neither have the magic 50% needed to take the seat this week.

The first election of 2022 unfolded in Tulare and Fresno counties, with six candidates competing to fill out the term of longtime Congressman Devin Nunes (R-Tulare), who resigned to run former President Donald Trump’s fledgling social media company. 

Nunes served just shy of 20 years in Washington D.C.

As of Wednesday, the 208 precincts in the district were listed as “partially” reporting. Vote-by-mail, provisional, and other ballots will continue to be counted after Election Night.  

Conway and Hubbard will head to a runoff in June. Voters will have just the two on the ballot this time.

Live coverage: Special election for 22nd district. Results begin at 8 p.m.
