Marrero Easy Winner in Democratic Primary for District 30 State Senate 

State Representative Beverly Marrero will soon be state Senator Beverly Marrero after a bigger-than-expected win Thursday in the special Democratic Primary election for District 30 -- where, if she defeats Republican Larry Parrish in March, she will succeed (from left)former District 30 senator (now congressman) Steve Cohen and current interim senator Shea Flinn

Marrero had 2,810 votes to 925 for former city attorney Spence, winning 73 percent to 24 percent. Spence, a highly touted candidate for the Memphis school board in 2004, has now suffered two successive electoral defeats.
