Norwood won election in the special election for District 28 of the Mississippi State Senate. The seat was vacant following the death of Alice Harden (D) on December 6, 2012. Norwood faced Cindy Ayers-Elliott, Tamarra Grace Butler, Marshand Crisler, Antonio Porter, James "Jimmy" Stewart, Kathy L. Sykes, Tommy L. Wallace, II and Cassanda Welchlin in the special election on February 5, 2013. Candidates had until January 7 to file. Special elections in Mississippi are non-partisan. As no candidate took over 50 percent of the vote, the top two vote-getters - Crisler and Norwood - met in a runoff on February 26, which Norwood won.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8]
