- CLOSE CONTEST: In the 2022 General Election, the AD-47 contest between Wallis and Christy Holstege was the closest in the history of the California State Assembly (in terms of percentage of votes separating the candidates). At the end of Election Night, Holstege led with more than 60% of the vote. The following day, it dropped to 55% and then to around 51% for the five days. After that, Holstege and Wallis exchanged the lead five more times before the legislature convened on December 5th. As of December 2nd, Wallis held a 34-vote lead, constituting 0.020% of the votes cast in that contest. At the start of the 2023-2024 legislative session, the State Assembly took the unprecedented step of not seating either candidate. After the election results were certified by the counties on December 8th (showing him with a final margin of 85 votes), Wallis declared victory. Wallis was sworn into office on December 12th.
