This time, the race to fill House District 17 didn't come down to a single vote. Mike Burns, who led run-off opponent Chris Sullivan by about ten points in the primary, scored a solid win in tonight's run-off vote, again leading Sullivan by about ten percentage points.
The final vote counts were
- Mike Burns: 1,383
- Chris Sullivan: 1,134
Barring any last-minute write-in candidacy, Burns is now unopposed for the seat, which was vacated by State Senator Tom Corbin in November.
