1918 - Box-office superstar William S. Hart promotes 4th series of Liberty Loan (World War I) bonds, which went on sale Sept. 28 [story]
William S. Hart


U.S. Rep. Steve Knight conceded defeat Wednesday after voters in California’s 25th Congressional District chose Democratic challenger Katie Hill by a 52-48 percent margin, with 100 percent of the district’s 350 precincts reporting.

“The voters have spoken and they want a new congressman or a congresswoman for this district, and we wish her the best,” Knight, R-Palmdale, told KCBS/Los Angeles Wednesday.

Knight conceded the race at 10:30 a.m. via voicemail to Hill.

“I left a message … she didn’t pick up today but I left her a message and said, ‘I hope you do very well, I wish you the best and, you know, they wanted to go in a different direction,'” he told KCBS.

While some provisional and mail-in votes are still being counted, “The votes that are out there are in LA County, and we weren’t doing as well in LA County as we’d hoped, so I think that this race is over,” Knight said.

“I entered this race to serve our community and bring our voice and priorities to Washington,” Hill said in a statement Wednesday afternoon. “I look forward to working on behalf of everyone in this district to ensure we all have access to quality health care, housing we can afford, and a representative and transparent government which truly serves the people.”

Hill went on to thank Knight “for his dedication and service to this community and our country. I look forward to working with him to ensure a smooth and effective transition.”

Hill said her election was “historic.”

“Our goal from day one was to empower this community to have a voice — and with more than 4,000 volunteers and 500,000 doors knocked, we delivered,” she said. “I am incredibly grateful to everyone who invested their time and energy into this effort. This is just the beginning.”

Hill won 67,102 votes (52.15 percent) to Knight’s 61,570 (47.85 percent).
The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s final tally and election certification is underway.

The 25th Congressional District includes parts of Simi Valley, the Santa Clarita Valley and the Antelope Valley. Here’s an interactive map.

The daughter of a police officer and registered nurse, Hill is a lifelong resident of the 25th Congressional District. Most recently, Hill served as Executive Director of PATH (People Assisting The Homeless), the largest homeless services organization in California.

Under Hill’s leadership, in just four years PATH helped more than 7,000 chronically homeless individuals, veterans, and families make it off the streets into permanent housing.

Hill was instrumental in developing and passing historic legislation, Proposition HHH and Measure H, to address homelessness in the city and county of Los Angeles.

Hill attended all public schools in the 25th District and holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from California State University, Northridge. She lives with her husband on a small farm in Agua Dulce.

    Good luck to Katie Hill!! She fought a hard fight and won!! I just hope, she won’t become a “lemming” like Steve Knight became, and be a slave to big interest. I hope she will remain a grass roots candidate, and not be controlled and a lemming to special interest like Steve Knight became. I am not sure, as a Congressperson, she can remain so independent, but I pray she does. And, the first thing she, and the Democrats that control the House must do, is common sense gun lawa!! And, I pray she will LISTEN to the concerns of her community and become a “politician” and start lying like they always do.
