There Shall Be Runoffs

In case you missed it, there were two special elections today. You can see the full results for both races here.

In state House district 50 (to replace Lynn Riley), we’ll have a runoff between Kelly Stewart who pulled in 44.06% of the vote compared to Bradford Raffensperger’s 41.89%.

In state House district 120 (to replace Mickey Channell), we’ll have a runoff between Trey Rhodes who pulled in 29.47% of the vote compared to Jesse Copelan’s 25.51%. Third place finisher Jesse Johnson earned 24.77%, a mere 41 votes behind Copelan, so I suppose Johnson could ask for a recount.
