Dunn to face Bowen for Calif secretary of state

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former NFL player Damon Dunn has won the Republican nomination for California secretary of state.

Dunn defeated Orange County lawyer Orly Taitz in Tuesday's primary, and will face incumbent Democrat Debra Bowen in the general election in November.

Dunn is a self-described "recovering nonvoter" who hadn't cast a ballot in an election until 2009. He had said his failure to vote would help him reach out to other nonvoters and inspire them to get involved.

The 34-year-old Dunn was born in Texas. He got a football scholarship to Stanford University, then bounced around the NFL and the now-defunct XFL and NFL Europe leagues for a few years before co-founding a real estate company with his former college roommate in 2001.
