Democrat Kim Humphrey has conceded a close legislative race in western Kentucky after a recanvass confirmed Tuesday's vote totals.
The recanvass was completed Thursday.
Miles replaces Democratic state Rep. John Arnold of Sturgis who resigned in September after being accused of sexually harassing legislative staffers at the Capitol.
Republicans, who have been pushing hard to win majority control of the House, see the race as important because it moves them a seat closer to their goal.
The Democratic majority now stands at 54-46.
