After losing the Democratic primary in Missouri’s 78th District, Bruce Franks has won in a landslide after challenging the validity of the first primary.

Franks won with more than 75 percent of the vote on Friday, a much greater margin than the 55 absentee votes he lost by in August.

State Representative Penny Hubbard won that contest, however Franks filed suit, with the courts ruling that the city’s board of elections mishandled at least 142 in-person absentee ballots.

Franks will almost certainly be on his was to Missouri’s state house, as the district leans heavily Democratic.
