    Primary election results revealed the likely winner of the empty Prince George's County council seat for District 6.

    Derrick Davis got 54 percent of total votes in Tuesday's election, beating out 14 other Democrats, according to the Maryland Board of Elections. The lone Republican, Day Gardner, got one percent of the votes.

    The special election will fill the seat vacated by Leslie Johnson, who resigned after pleading guilty to corruption charges back in June.

    Voters in Prince George's County's District 6 are predominately Democrat, making Davis the likely winner of next month's general election set for October 18th.
