LEXINGTON COUNTY, S.C. (WACH)-- The votes are in and the Lexington County community has voted Chris Wooten in to fill the vacant seat for House Representative District 69.

Wooten earned 55 percent of the votes during Tuesday's runoff election against Anne Marie Eckstorm Green.

Even though there aren't any Democratic candidates in the race, the election isn't final despite Wooten's win.

The Special Election is set for May 1 and will end the process for the replacement of former representative Rick Quinn.

Wooten is a former Marine and State Trooper who owns a fitness center in Lexington run by his family and friends.
