Fluke to Compete in Senate Runoff After Finishing Second

Sandra Fluke, the California lawyer whose 2012 congressional testimony on contraception drew insults from radio host Rush Limbaugh, will face fellow Democrat Ben Allen in a November runoff for a state Senate seat.

Fluke, 33, came in second in yesterday’s eight-way primary, with 19.7 percent of the vote, according to the California Secretary of State’s office. Allen, an attorney and member of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District board, came in first with 21.8 percent.
