One belated Gothic election 2010 note: a dead woman won a California election.
Because her death was only two weeks before Tuesday's election, Oropeza's name remained on the ballot.
Oropeza easily won re-election over Republican opponent, John Stammreich, gathering 58% of the vote to his 36%.
Stammreich wins the Ashcroft award for necro-defeat.
