Maryland Sen. Donald F. Munson, R-Washington, will likely serve his third term in office after apparently defeating opponent H. Victoria "Vikki" Nelson during Tuesday's primary.
The senator will run unopposed in the Nov. 3 general election since no Democrats filed for the seat.
In the race, the incumbent received 5,185 votes, while Nelson garnered 1,699. Election results were complete but unofficial.
"I feel incredible. I love my job. This is great," said Munson, 60, of Hagerstown, during a victory celebration at the Corner Pub.
The senator said he felt good about the race throughout and received plenty of positive support from voters while going door-to-door.
As for his goals for his next term in office, Munson said he will continue the course he set more than 20 years ago.
