COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Republican Sen. Frank LaRose has won the race for Ohio Secretary of State.
Voting returns from Tuesday show LaRose defeated Democrat Kathleen Clyde, a state representative from Kent.
The 39-year-old LaRose will replace Secretary of State Jon Husted (HYOO'-sted), who ran on the Republican ticket for governor.
LaRose has been in the state Senate since 2011 and before that served in the U.S. Army Special Forces.
He has said in recent interviews he wants to change how the state aggressively trims its voter rolls by targeting people who haven't voted in a while.
But he also supports the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling that upheld Ohio's methods of pruning voters in a case closely watched around the nation.
LaRose also has backed efforts to replace aging voting machines in Ohio.
