TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Voters in five northeast Florida counties have picked Audrey Gibson as their next likely state senator.

A special Democratic primary was held Tuesday in Duval, Putnam, St. John's, Flagler and Volusia counties to pick a successor to outgoing State Sen. Tony Hill.

According to unofficial results, Audrey Gibson led a field of four candidates with 62 percent. Coming in second was Terry Fields with 32 percent, followed by Ramon Day and Leandrew Mills with 3 percent each.

Hill resigned in order to take a job in the administration of Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown. He would have been forced to leave office next year due to term limits.

Gibson will face a write-in candidate during the October general election.
