Bill Marcy has won a Republican primary runoff in Mississippi's 2nd Congressional District.
Voter turnout was light Tuesday in the district that runs through the Delta, over to Jackson and down to Jefferson County.
Marcy is a 64-year-old retired Chicago police officer who lives in Meridian, Miss., more than 100 miles outside the district. He says he plans to move into the district.
Marcy defeated 51-year-old Richard Cook, a Jackson public school teacher who lives in Byram.
Marcy will face Democratic incumbent Bennie Thompson of Bolton and the Reform Party's Ashley Norwood of Canton in the November general election.
Cook ran unsuccessfully against Thompson in 2008.
