Democrat Jeanne Richardson was the easy winner in a three-way special election race to determine the new state representative in House District 89 (Midtown).

Richardson polled 69 percent of the vote against Republican Dave Wicker's 16 and write-in candidate Steve Edmundson's 14.

She succeeds both Beverly Marrero, who vacated the seat after winning a special election to fill the District 30 state Senate seat, and interim state representative Mary Wilder.
