Hamilton County Commissioner Larry Henry was pleased to see election numbers roll in Tuesday, as he gathered with friends and campaign workers for an "election watch."
After all precincts reported, Henry had pulled in 9,136 votes. His Republican competitors, Lisa Bowman and Ron Parson got 4,217 and 2,508, respectively.
"I'm really grateful and gratified. We had a lot of good people working for us," Henry said. "Thankfully, we aren't facing any opposition in the general. I'm going to look forward to getting into the Circuit Court Clerk's office."
Incumbent Criminal Court Clerk Gwen Tidwell held her seat in the Democratic primary; she faces Republican state Rep. Vince Dean in the August general election.
Tidwell pulled in 4,811 votes. Her competitor, Brian White, got 947 votes. There were 14 write-ins.
Tuesday was a formality for Republican County Clerk Bill Knowles, who was granted another four years in office without any opposition from the GOP or Democrat challengers. The same goes for Juvenile Court Clerk Gary Behler. Behler was not challenged in Tuesday's primary and faces no opponent in August, although he picked up 12,375 votes.
Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Hammond defeated his Republican primary opponent which means he will keep his position for anther four years.
