A whopping 78 percent of voters stood firmly behind Scott, a Democrat who did not face a GOP candidate in the race for the 21st state senate district.
Receiving nearly twice as many votes as her challenger, Liu defeated Republican Lynn Caffrey Gabriel in a landslide victory that gave her a third term in the 44th Assembly District.
Speaking to volunteers and supporters at his campaign headquarters, Dreier said he was both humbled and grateful by the election results.
"'I look forward to another two years of working with the people of the 26th district to address important issues facing our district and nation," he said. "Protecting our homeland, improving our schools, providing tax relief, tackling our transportation needs and stopping illegal immigration are among my priorities for my next term in Congress."
Matthews, who said her campaign cost less than $50,000, was surprised by the results and said her camp is making preparations for future elections.
"It's amazing, isn't it?" she said of the 60,500 votes she received. "I got closer than I thought I was going to get."
Matthews said she would continue to monitor Dreier's voting record. "This isn't over. This is the first run here," she said. "We're going to keep on him."
At a celebration Tuesday night at the Pasadena Hilton, Scott, Liu and their supporters gathered to celebrate the victories of the former Pasadena City College president and the former La Cañada Flintridge mayor.
Hours before the polls closed, volunteers in the Pasadena Republican Headquarters held out hope for Gabriel, who was endorsed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
