Scott Wagner declares victory in special election

Posted: Updated:
YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

Following a contentious and at times downright nasty race for a York County state Senate seat, conservative trash company owner Scott Wagner has declared victory.

Wagner, the write-in candidate, received 10,595 votes, or 47.68 percent, in a special election for the 28th District, according to unofficial results.

Republican Representative Ron Miller had 5,920 votes, or 26.64 percent, and Democrat Linda Small received 5,704 votes, or 25.67 percent.

Both have conceded to Wagner.

The candidates were running for the seat vacated by former state Senator Mike Waugh, who resigned in January when he was named executive director of the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg.
