BULLITT COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - Despite receiving backlash for racially charged social media posts, Dan Johnson won a Kentucky House seat in last week's election.
Of his 93-hundred votes, Johnson received 59 hundred straight ticket votes, meaning only 34 hundred voters checked his name on their ballot.
Straight-ticket voting lets voters choose all of a party's candidates with just a single mark on a ballot.
His Democratic opponent, Linda Belcher, received 24-hundred straight ticket votes but 67-hundred voters actually checked Belcher's name.
Johnson won the House seat by 156 votes.
