Jessica Garvin defeated incumbent State Senator Paul Scott to earn the Republican nomination for the District 43 senate seat in Tuesday’s Republican Runoff Election.

Scott won in McClain County, 1,713 to 1,292 but district-wide Garvin got the nod with 51.56 percent of the vote, knocking off Scott, 3,927 to 3,689.

The upset of the incumbent sets up an all-Marlow race in the November general election.

Garvin, a Marlow resident, will square off with Terri Reimer of Marlow, who was the only Democrat to file for the seat.

Reimer is a 1998 Purcell High School graduate.

Garvin made the runoff in the primary election June 30 when Scott failed to get the 50 percent plus one majority.

In the primary both Garvin and Scott ousted Kaity Keith in the three-person race. Scott garnered 49.9 percent of the vote in the primary while Garvin received 39.3 percent.

The general election will be November 3.
