Vote today: State Senate District 1 race is June 4

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — Voters on Tuesday, June 4, will decide a runoff race for California Senate District 1.

Republican Assemblymen Brian Dahle, 53, and Kevin Kiley, 34, are seeking to take the spot of former state Sen. Ted Gaines, who left office after winning a seat on the state Board of Equalization in November 2018.

Dahle and Kiley advanced to a runoff after taking the top two spots in a March 26 primary. Neither candidate received at least 50% plus one vote, which led to the runoff.
