Trump-backed Connie Conway to Replace California Rep. Devin Nunes in House

From TTN:

Former California state Rep. Connie Conway has won a special election to take over the seat left by Congressman Devin Nunes. Conway will serve in the House representing the Gold State’s 22nd District until January.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Conway was strongly favored to win against her Democratic challenger Lourin Hubbard, a state Water Department manager. She will likely be the last representative of the Republican stronghold in California’s Central Valley because the district will look radically different due to redistricting starting in January 2023. Nunes announced his departure from Congress to run former President Donald Trump’s Truth Social last December.

Conway earned endorsements from Trump and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and she is well known among California Republicans after serving in the California State Assembly from 2008 to 2014.

Though Conway’s House tenure will be short, neither she nor Hubbard ran in any primary for a full House term in a new district. She said that if there was a chance for Republicans to stay in power, Nunes wouldn’t have left.

“I didn’t always have a desire to run, to serve in Congress,” she said. “It was hard for people to grasp: ‘Why are you only running for six months?’ If there was a place to be, Congressman Nunes would have stayed, and he would be there.”
