OKLAHOMA CITY -

Democratic candidate Cyndi Munson has won the house district seat held by longtime state Rep. David Dank, according to election results.

Munson beat Republican candidate Chip Carter in a special election for House District 85 with 54 percent of the votes with 2,640 votes. Carter won 2,268 votes.

Munson will serve in the state House for the remainder of Dank's term.
