Former WWE and TNA/Impact performer Matt Morgan won a local Florida ballot on Tuesday, and was elected to the position of Longwood City Commissioner.
Morgan won the voting soundly, defeating his opponent, Mark Weller by a 58.5% to 41.5% margin in a race that had a total of 2,101 votes cast.
Morgan was released from Global Force Wrestling on July 24th after having made a brief comeback from his 2014 retirement.
“This city tonight feels very liberated,” Morgan told the Orlando Sentinel, shortly after his victory. “We sent a very, very strong one-two punch. No more career politicians here in Longwood.”
