Rep. McWilliams resigns from seat

Just days after winning re-election to her seat in the state House of Representatives, Democrat Diana McWilliams has resigned. The move was not unexpected. Last month, McWilliams said she planned to step down from her North Wilmington seat after winning re-election without opposition.

McWilliams is moving to New Mexico to take a job in the nonprofit sector.

A special election will be held in the 6th District to choose a replacement.
