Thursday’s election to replace Representative Ruth Briggs King – the only Republican woman in the Delaware General Assembly – and fill the seat of the 37th district, has been decided.
Republican Valerie Jones Giltner has defeated Democrat Jane Hovington
Here are the results:
(R.) Valerie Jones Giltner: 1,805
(D.) Jane Hovington: 1,068
Briggs King resigned from her seat in mid November. The seat represents Georgetown and Millsboro in Sussex County.
Per Delaware Code, a writ of election must be issued within 10 days of the vacancy occurring, and the special election is required to take place between 30-35 days from when the writ is issued.
