City Times Staff
Republican Patrick Testin has bested Julie Lassa in the race for District 24 Representative.
Testin garnered 23,525 votes to Lassa’s 19,551 votes. Lassa has held the position since being elected on 2003.
“After 10 long months on the campaign, knocking on more than 15,000 doors, meeting voters at hundreds of events and hearing what’s on their minds, I am humbled and encouraged by such overwhelming support,” Testin said. “There are challenges facing veterans, small business owners, and everyday hard-working taxpayers who just want the shot at a better life for their children and their families. We’re going to work together to make that happen, finding the best ideas to forge a smart path forward.”
Lassa’s office has not yet made a statement.
