As predicted, the late State Senator Jenny Oropeza was re-elected last night to serve the 28th District, which covers Long Beach and parts of the South Bay, according to ABC7. A special election will be held to put another Democrat in her place in the vacant seat. Oropeza died on October 20th "of complications from a blood clot in her abdomen" following a long battle with liver cancer.
