Primary Election Results

SHERMAN, TX -- Voters headed to the polls today to choose who will be the next Grayson County Judge.

It was a long night for candidates and supporters at watch parties. Supporters on both sides told KTEN this race certainly heated up after the primaries back in March.

Both candidates were camped out at separate places in downtown Sherman. Bill Magers was at the Seibman Law Office, right across the street from the republican headquarters, and Trent Bass was at Lupes restaurant, just around the corner from headquarters.

Shortly after 9 p.m., the results were in. Magers taking the county judge vote by 51 percent. After the cheers quieted down, Magers gave a short speech thanking his supporters before walking over to headquarters as a group.

“I’m just so glad that the voters in Grayson County accepted and bought into our positive message,” said Magers. “I’m excited to go to work for all of the folks in Grayson County. This has been a very tough, divisive race. We’re ready to go forward and work very hard as a county and I’m really looking forward to working on the challenges and leaving Grayson County better than we found it.”

With no democratic candidate, Magers will run unopposed in the fall election. 

Results from the rest of the state, long-time Congressman Ralph Hall has been defeated in Tuesday’s election.

Hall was defeated for the republican nomination for Texas' 4th congressional district by former U.S. Attorney John Radcliffe by a 52 to 48 percent margin. At 91, Hall is the oldest-ever member of the U.S. House. Since there is no democrat running, Ratcliffe will win the seat in November.
