Campbell was running as the Republican candidate and was challenged by Democrat Jade Harris. The two were running to succeed Delegate Ronnie Campbell, who died after a fight with cancer, as we reported.

On Tuesday night, Ellen announced her win on Facebook.

“I am so deeply humbled by this incredible opportunity,” Campbell wrote, in part. “I commit to you that I will do the work that you expect me to do and represent well the conservative values of the 24th District. I can truly think of no better way to honor Ronnie’s legacy.”
