BURBANK — The ballots have been cast and counted after Tuesday’s primary, and now local candidates are turning their attention to November’s general election.
Several of the candidates ran unopposed in the primary, such as U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, who represents the 29th Congressional District, which includes Burbank and Glendale. Schiff has held that post since 2000, when he unseated a Republican to take office.
“I look forward to a vigorous campaign in the fall, and I take nothing for granted,” he said.
Schiff said that he expects a heavy turnout at the polls in November because of the presidential race.
“I think there will be record turnout in November,” said Schiff, who garnered 20,550 votes in the primary.
Schiff’s Republican opponent will be Charles Hahn, a financial advisor who lives in Burbank and is running for Congress for the first time. He received 100%, or 13,169 votes, in the primary. He said he was pleased with the tally.
