Gov. Gavin Newsom has scheduled a May 12 special election to fill the congressional seat left vacant by the resignation of Katie Hill.

The primary vote will be held March 3, the same day as the state’s presidential primary election.

Hill surrendered her 25th Congressional District seat amid allegations she had a relationship with a member of her staff, and following the online publication of intimate photos of her with a female member of her campaign staff.

She has denied any wrongdoing and said she was the victim of a revenge porn campaign.

The district includes the Santa Clarita Valley and portions of the northern San Fernando Valley, Antelope Valley and eastern Ventura County.
