Incumbent Ronnie Peterson found himself on a rather crowded ballot in the democratic race for the 54th district state house seat. Peterson is finishing up his first term in office now, and faced a challenge from three other candidates.
Peterson received nearly 57-percent of the vote to fend off Roderick Casey, Isaac L. London II and William Riney. Peterson will run-off against Republican Colton A. Campbell in November. Campbell defeated Ora Wright in Tuesday’s primary.
