JACKSON — Former Jackson city councilman Marshand Crisler and former Jackson Public Schools school board member Sollie B. Norwood will vie in a Feb. 26 runoff to complete the term of the late state Sen. Sen. Alice Harden.
Harden, a Democrat from Jackson, died in December.
Nine candidates were on the ballot in the special election for the District 28 post.
Complete, but unofficial returns showed Crisler got 25 percent of the vote and Norwood got 22.5 percent of the vote. Harden’s niece, Tamarra Grace Butler, got 22.1 percent of the vote.
Senate District 28 is located entirely in Hinds County.
