The special election to fill the vacant state Senate seat representing California's 30th District appears to have a clear victor.

As of about 11 p.m. Tuesday, Democrat and 54th District Assemblymember Sydney Kamlager had secured roughly 67% of the vote, more than 50 points ahead of the second-place finisher, fellow Democrat and Culver City Councilmember Daniel Lee.

The special election was called after then-State Senator Holly Mitchell won a seat on the L.A. County Board of Supervisors last year. Kamlager previously served as Mitchell's district director.
