Capps wins reelection to Congress

November 7, 2012

Lois Capps

Democratic Rep. Lois Capps defeated Republican Abel Maldonado in the race to represent the Central Coast in Congress, according to incomplete returns.

Following redistricting, the seat became one of a few in California that the Republican Party hoped to wrestle from a Democratic incumbent. The campaign included numerous attack ads and support of more than $3 million from political parties, independent political groups and individuals.

Nevertheless, Capps easily swept into victory with a 55 to 45 percent lead with all districts reporting.
