JACKSON — Former Jackson Public Schools school board member Sollie B. Norwood has defeated former Jackson city councilman Marshand Crisler in a runoff to complete the term of the late state Sen. Sen. Alice Harden.
Harden, a Democrat from Jackson, died in December.
Complete, but unofficial returns showed Norwood with 54 percent of the vote. He expects to be sworn in by the end of the week.
Senate District 28 is located entirely in Hinds County.
