Incumbent Phillip Diserio defeated Lynn Davis by a narrow margin Tuesday night to retain his seat in West Virginia's 2nd Delegate District.

Unofficially, Diserio, D-Brooke, garnered 3,406 votes to the 3,146 votes cast for Davis, a Republican.

Diserio was appointed to a 2nd District seat in January to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of former Delegate Tim Ennis, now a Brooke County commissioner.

Redistricting resulting from the 2010 Census cut the 2nd Delegate District from two to just one delegate.

Current Delegate Roy Givens, D-Brooke, did not seek re-election.

"I was humbled to be appointed by Gov. Tomblin to this position," Diserio said following his victory. "But now I'm just really honored that the citizens of the 2nd Delegate District of West Virginia chose me to be their representative, and we'll work from here."
