Former Clark County Magistrate Greg Elkins, a Republican, won a special election Tuesday to fill a vacancy in Central Kentucky’s 28th state Senate District.
The vacancy was created when Republican Ralph Alvarado left the seat Jan. 6 to become commissioner for the Tennessee Department of Health.
Elkins, chief executive officer of Central Kentucky Hauling, defeated Democrat Robert Sainte and independent Richard Henderson in Tuesday’s contest.
He will serve the remainder of Alvarado’s term, which ends in 2026.
The district covers Bath, Clark, Montgomery, Menifee and part of Fayette counties.
