Assembly race: Gordon, Yang to face off

The only question regarding the District 24 state Assembly election on June 5 was which of the three political novices in the race would run in November against Rich Gordon, a former San Mateo County supervisor and current first-term assemblyman.

That person will be software engineer and Republican Chengzhi "George" Yang, 35, of Menlo Park. Mr. Gordon garnered about 56 percent of the vote. Mr. Yang finished second with about 29 percent of the vote.

Because of California's new primary rules, the top two vote-getters automatically advance to the general election in November.
