Dr. Greg Murphy won Tuesday’s special Third District Republican primary runoff against Dr. Joan Perry.
With all of the precincts reporting Murphy had 59.71% of the vote. Perry had 40.29%.
Dr. Murphy said, “It’s a moment of relief. We had a great team working hard. It shows outside money and influence poured in didn’t work and we combated it with grassroots campaigning and that’s what the people responded to.”
Murphy also said he received a call from Vice President Mike Pence who said they pledge their full support to ensure a win.
In the April 30th primary, Murphy ended up with 22.5% of the vote, while Perry received 15.4% among 17 candidates on the ballot.
