Democrat Scott Peters will now compete against incumbent Brian Bilbray for the 52 Congressional seat in November.
Despite murmurings of a possible recount for former 52nd Congressional District candidate Lori Saldana, San Diego's Democratic Party announced Saldana will concede to fellow Democrat Scott Peters.
Now, with all precincts reporting, the two are separated by just over 700 votes, with Peters taking 22.62 percent of the votes and Saldana winning 22.12 percent of the votes.
Incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Brian Bilbray received 41.07 percent of the vote, so he'll face Peters in November.
Saldana conceded to Peters Wednesday night.
"This was a close and hard-fought primary race that energized volunteers and donors for both Lori Saldaña and Scott Peters," said San Diego County Democratic Party Chair Jess Durfee. "Our Democratic candidates set the stage for November by winning more votes combined than Brian Bilbray."
California law requires there to be evidence of prove fraud or irregularities in the voting system for a recount. But any citizen can request a recount. With Saldana's concession, it is unlikely this will happen.
"I commend Lori Saldaña on running a tremendous grassroots campaign," Durfee said. "And I congratulate Scott Peters for securing his place as the Democratic standard-bearer in the runoff."
