For over three weeks after the November 2008 election, Huber was behind in the vote count; however, after provisional ballots from Sacramento County were counted, she was declared the winner on November 26, 2008. The final count showed she had defeated Jack Sieglock, a Republican and a San Joaquin County Supervisor, by 474 votes. Sieglock had already attended the orientation for new Assembly members when he learned he hadn't won.
In 2010, Sieglock unsuccessfully challenged Huber for the same seat—Huber 52.0%, Sieglock 42.7%.
Huber declined to seek reelection in 2012.
