Clay Ford (R), in a primary election Tuesday. The general election will be held June 11 for the vacant seat.
According to the Miami Herald, “If Hill wins the seat, he would become the only African-American Republican currently serving in the Legislature.”
Mr. Hill won by nearly 2 to 1 over the second place candidate.
Congratulations to Mike Hill for winning his first election to public office. And many more!
