Democrat Reggie Thomas has won the special election for the State Senate seat in Lexington's 13th district.

Unofficial results released Tuesday night show Thomas won the race with about 54% of the vote.

Thomas will replace Democrat Kathy Stein, who resigned to become a judge.

The results show 7,510 voters cast ballots in the special election.

There were three other candidates vying for the seat.

Former Democrat-turned-Independent Richard Moloney took about 35% of the vote.

And former Democrat-turned-Republican Michael Johnson came in with about 11% of the vote.

A write-in candidate, Michael Graetz, received two votes.

The 13th State Senate District is more than 2:1 Democratic.

Thomas is a Lexington attorney and a Professor at Kentucky State University.

The results are expected to be certified December 17th by the State Board of Elections.
