In 1991,  she became the first African American elected to the Carson City Council, and she served in the Assembly before going to Congress in 1996. Governor Schwarzenegger has the next two weeks to set a special election. Assemblyman Mervyn Dymally is one of those who predict a "major scramble" to replace her.
