Long Beach, California – Republican Cambodian-American candidate Elizabeth Henglost her bid to unseat the Democratic incumbent Jim Costa for California’s 16th district in the midterm elections on Tuesday.
Costa, a seasoned politician, beat Heng 54.4 percent to 45.6 percent, according to the State’s primary results.
“My campaign was not for myself, but for the people of this valley, because I believed – and still believe – that we deserve better solutions to the issues we face,” Heng tweeted in a conceding message. “We’ve fought a hard battle this election season, but the fight does not stop here.”
