FARMINGTON, Mo. (AP) - An incumbent county commissioner in eastern Missouri is apparently staying in office after a special election necessitated by a tie vote.

The Daily Journal newspaper in Park Hills, Missouri (https://bit.ly/2czu1SM ) reports that incumbent St. Francois County District 1 Commissioner Gary Wilkinson defeated challenger Linda Black 1,561 to 1,280 in a special election on Thursday.

The two tied in the Aug. 2 Republican primary with 1,589 votes each.

Wilkinson now has a clear road to victory as there are no Democratic or third-party challengers on the November general election ballot.
