Enormous crowds at some Germantown polling places showed in the results as incumbent Alberta Darling, R-River Hills, gashed challenger Sandy Pasch by more than 2.5-to-1.
The unofficial vote totals Tuesday night were 6,030 votes for Darling to 2,320 votes for Pasch.
Waiting times at some polling places were more than 30 minutes as lines grew more than 70 deep at times in a historically Republican-leaning district that was billed as crucial for Darling in her bid to retain her 8th District Senate seat.
Voter turnout was unavailable following the count.
