JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) — Unofficial results show Benjamin Suber has won the Republican runoff for state Senate District 8.

On Tuesday night, it appeared his opponent Stephen Griffin had won.

However, the results out Wednesday showed a change in the outcome.

Suber finished with 3,082 votes while Griffin had 2,886 votes.

The Republican nominee now faces Democrat Kegan Coleman in the November general election to replace Senator Russell Jolly, who decided not to seek another term representing Calhoun and Chickasaw counties as well as parts of Lee, Pontotoc and Yalobusha counties.
