The political race to determine the Republican candidate to fill the seat vacated by State Representative Rob Orr finally came to an end May 27.

To win the right to face Crowley resident and Democratic candidate Greg Kauffman in November’s general election, Burns received 5,141 votes (53.4 percent) to Eby’s 4,481 (46.6 percent), a difference of only 660 votes.
