State Assemblyman and Tea Party favorite Tim Donnelly (R-Twin Peaks) easily blew Bill Jahn (R-Big Bear) out of the water on Tuesday.

Donnelly secured 51.7% of the vote in Tuesdays primary election.

The hope by some was that Jahn would place second and face Donnelly head-to-head.

A scenario voters nixed, when they sent Jahn packing.

Donnelly now faces an easy November contest against Democrat John Coffey, who beat Jahn by a 10.3% margin.
