For over three weeks after the November 2008 election, Lewis 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 Lewis for the same seat—Lewis 52.0%, Sieglock 42.7%.
Lewis declined to seek reelection in 2012.
She started her college career at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, transferring to California State University, Chico and then to Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, where she received her undergraduate degree.
Lewis received her law degree from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, San Francisco.
Lewis lives in El Dorado Hills with her two children from her ex-husband Tim Huber.
