Havre Daily News/Lindsay Brown
Greg Jergeson waits for election results to trickle in Tuesday night at the Eagles Club.
After more than ten years out of the legislative body, Democrat Greg Jergeson is going back to the Montana Senate.
Jergeson, of Chinook, defeated Harlem insurance agent Don Richman, Republican, 3,858 to 3,287.
The seat is a gain back for Democrats, who traditionally were in control of both Hill and Blaine counties. Republican Rowlie Hutton of Havre won the race in 2010, only to announce during the 2011 session he was resigning and moving to Nebraska.
