Democratic candidate Jonathan Wallace has won the district 119 seat in the Nov. 7 special election.
Wallace won the district with 56.69 percent of the vote.
Wallace was the only Democratic candidate in the race, defeating Republican candidates Tom Lord, Steven Strickland and Marcus Wiedower.
“So you've heard the good news,” began Wallace in his victory speech to members of the community who attended his election results party.
He thanked the crowd for their support, kindness and encouragement throughout the race.
“Now I’ve got to go be a legislator,” Wallace said. “I need to know what to prioritize, I need to know what you care about, I need to hear from you and keep hearing from you.”
