FAYETTEVILLE — State Sen. Randy White will head into November as the 11th District Democrats’ choice after voters on Tuesday elected to keep the former House of Delegates member in the Senate.

With all precincts reporting, White crushed his nearest challenger, Summersville attorney Greg Tucker, by nearly 2,000 votes. Dr. Carlotta Evans, the only other Democratic contender, lagged behind with 2,948 votes, compared to White’s 6,543 and Tucker’s 4,594.

Republican Harold “Pete” Sigler, a veteran coal miner and business owner, was unopposed in his party’s primary and will face off against White in November.

White was mayor of Addison from 1991 until 2003. The Webster Springs resident spent three terms in the House until voters sent him to the Senate in 2002. White is chairman of the Enrolled Bills Committee and vice chairman of the committees on both labor and natural resources.

The 11th District encompasses portions of Clay, Fayette, Nicholas, Upshur and Webster counties. None of the candidates returned telephone calls Wednesday and could not be reached for comment.
