JoAnne Favors won today’s election with 3,957 votes in a newly-drawn district that pitted two black Democratic incumbents against one another in the primary election. Incumbent Tommie Brown got 1,514 votes.

Brown, 78, is defending a seat she’s held since 1992. Favors, 69, who was elected to sister House District 29 in 2004, made the decision to challenge her after being drawn into District 28 earlier this year.

The winner will face Republican Johnny Horne in the Nov. 6 general election.
