The unofficial results from the Secretary of State website report Republican Terry Rogers has won House District 10 with 61 percent of the vote, with 99 percent of the precincts reporting.

In Senate District 28, with 94 percent of the precincts reporting, unofficial results show Duke Blackburn has received 28 percent of the vote and Mike Crane has received 20 percent of the vote. In Senate District 50, unofficial results show Rick Austin has received 43 percent of the vote and John K. Wilkinson has received 39 percent of the vote, with 99 percent of the precincts reporting.
