The race to succeed Henry Waxman has officially whittled down from 18 candidates to just two, as State Sen. Ted Lieu and attorney Elan Carr will square off on Nov. 4.

With all precincts reporting as of 3:08 a.m. on Wednesday morning, Carr, a Republican, emerged as the top vote getter in the June 3 primary.

Carr finished with 17,904 votes (21.5 percent), comfortably ahead of Lieu’s 15,870 votes (19 percent).

The Democrat Lieu handily edged out fellow Blue candidate and former Los Angeles Councilwoman Wendy Greuel, whose first campaign for federal office ended with 13,976 votes (16.8 percent).

For Greuel, it is her second consecutive defeat in a major election. In 2013, she finished second to Eric Garcetti in the race to become Los Angeles mayor.

In fourth place was Marianne Williamson, whose 10,789 votes and 12.9 percent mark slightly edge Matt Miller (9,973 votes, 12 percent).

Williamson ran as an Independent while Miller campaigned as a Democrat.

Republican Lilly Gilani collected 5,831 votes (7.0 percent).

No other candidate crossed the 3 percent threshold.

The race for the 33rd Congressional district is one of the most watched campaigns in the country. Waxman is leaving his seat after 40 years in Washington, D.C. His 33rd district, as it is currently composed, is one of the most economically affluent districts in the United States. Cities and districts within the 33rd include Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Malibu, Palos Verdes, and the San Fernando Valley. The district also leans left.

Other candidates included: Barbara L. Mulvaney (1,945 votes); Kevin Mottus (1,935); David Kanuth (1,177); Kristie Holmes (770); Mark Matthew Herd (674); Matthew Ian Sachs (552); Michael Shapiro (530); Tom Fox (397); Zein E. Obaji, Jr., (360); Vince Flaherty (258); James Graf (245); and, Brent Roske (135).
