HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) — Republican Tony O. Wilt has easily won a three-way race for a seat in Virginia's General Assembly.

Unofficial results posted on the Virginia Board of Elections' website show Wilt received 6,209 votes in Tuesday's special election for the 26th House District seat.

Wilt will fill a vacancy left by the appointment of Matt Lohr as commissioner of agriculture. The district includes Harrisonburg and the northern portions of Rockingham County.

Harrisonburg Mayor Kai Degner, a Democrat, received 2,820 votes. City Councilwoman Carolyn Frank, an independent, received 391 votes.
