REYNOLDS, Ind. (WLFI) — Three candidates were on the Republican ballot this year. Tony Lantz, Mike Hall and Bill Brooks were the candidates.

Brooks won Tuesday evening's vote with 58 percent of the vote. Lantz came in with 34 percent, while Hill came in with 7 percent.

News 18 caught up with Brooks to get his reaction to the win.

"Overwhelmed, we felt from the very beginning, but you know it's not done till it's done. The voter has the final say," said Brooks. "So, we felt good coming into it and White County spoke and gave it to us. So, it's a great opportunity." 

Brooks will face Independent Mark Helms in the General Election.
