Honda vs. Khanna Part II

- The rematch for a congressional seat in the South Bay could be even tighter than two years ago.

Incumbent Mike Honda squared off in a neck-and-neck race with challenger Ro Khanna in Tuesday's primary.

With 100% of precincts reporting, Khanna actually held a razor thin lead over the incumbent, 38.3% to 38.1%.

The two men will now face each other again in November's general election.

Khanna was a virtual unknown candidate two years ago.

At one point, he was down 20-percentage points.

The hard-fought, expensive 2014 race ended with Honda winning by about 4-percentage points.

Khanna says he's in a "good position" in this year's race.

Honda was unavailable Tuesday night, as he flew back to Washington, D.C. for a legislative session.

His campaign manager says they will fight "tooth-and-nail" for every vote.
