COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - Charles “Chuck” Younger and Bobby Patrick are headed to a runoff to decide who will replace the late Terry Brown in the state Senate.

Complete but unofficial results show Younger got 41.4 percent of the vote while Patrick received 26 percent in Tuesday’s election.

The runoff is Nov. 25.

Brown died in September after a battle with cancer. The winner will complete the remainder of Brown’s term, which runs to January 2016.

Others on the ballot were former Sen. Bill Canon and Bill Gavin.

The 51-year-old Younger has farmed and ranched in Lowndes and Monroe counties for more than 30 years. The 68-year-old Patrick retired in 2011 after nearly 40 years as an insurance agent.
