The Reporter's Gin Dumcius, who is covering the results in the field tonight, says that unofficial results show Jackson with 1,943 votes compared to his closest rival, Cornell Mills, who has 271 votes. That gives Jackson a whopping 67 percent plurality— and a huge advantage as he and Mills head towards a final showdown on March 15.

Mills is the son of former State Senator Dianne Wilkerson, who made an appeal to voters in a letter sent to residents on Monday.
