SD 36: Butler (D) Wins Special Election
In the non-partisan runoff to fill the open state Senate seat in District 36, Albert Butler defeated Jimmy Strong by a vote of 3781 to 2496 (according to Jimmy Strong’s website).
Not much of a surprise here. Butler was endorsed by the state Democratic Party in this heavily Democratic district and the balance of the Senate will remain the same when he is officially sworn in.
Butler currently serves as a Claiborne County supervisor.
