Roll Call has an article about Kevin McCarthy's opposition in November, noting that even though no candidate qualified for the primary ballot, one of the four write-ins will make Top Two. CA-23 is in three counties. Of those, only Kern has released their final write-in tally. Kern is 80% of the primary votes, so the other counties aren't needed to determine who finishes second. Raul Garcia, a Democrat who they couldn't reach, got 296 votes. Mike Biglay, who talked about attacking McCarthy from the right, got 154 votes. Ronald Porter, who claims to understand the Constitution, got 36. Gail Lightfoot, a perennial candidate who believes "that people are fed up", got 28. So his opponent will be Garcia, the Democrat.
