Lexington County Council candidate Darrell Hudson lost a second round in his bid to overturn the victory of Republican Kent Collins.

The State Election Commission turned down Hudson’s appeal Tuesday after concluding it was unrelated to ballot procedures.

Hudson finished second in a five-candidate field to Collins in District 3, which includes most of the town of Lexington and areas to its north and west.
