Primary election results
Garfield County’s Republicans had a stronger turnout than its Democrats in Tuesday’s primary election.
There were no directly competitive races Tuesday because each candidate already has been chosen as the party’s main candidate for his or her prospective office.
So in such elections, party leaders try and get a bead on the strength of both the Democratic and Republican parties in the county.
The results of Tuesday’s election were: for District 1 Garfield County commissioner candidates Tresi Houpt (D) 182, and incumbent Walt Stowe (R) 539; Garfield County Sheriff candidates Lou Vallario (R) 559, and incumbent Tom Dalessandri (D) 178; Garfield County treasurer candidates incumbent Georgia Chamberlain (D) 200, and Cheryl Chandler (R) 546; District 57 state representative candidates Terry Carwile (D) 74, and incumbent Al White (R) 255; District 61 state representative candidates Rick Davis (D) 98, and incumbent House member Gregg Rippy (R) 333; Garfield County coroner candidate William Trey Holt (R) 597; county assessor candidate Shannon Hurst (R) 568; and Garfield County clerk and recorder Mildred Alsdorf (R) 605.
Other races were as follows:
U.S. Senator candidates Wayne Allard (R) 595, and Tom Strickland (D) 198; U.S. House of Representatives candidates Scott McInnis (R) 608, and Denis Breckfeldt (D) 166; Colorado gubernatorial candidates Bill Owens (R) 591, and Rollie Heath (D) 173; Colorado secretary of state candidates Donetta Davidson (R) 569, and Anthony Martinez (D) 168; state treasurer candidates Mike Coffman (R) 575; and Terry L. Phillips (D) 168; attorney general candidates Marti Allbright (R) 559, and Ken Salazar (D) 192; Colorado Board of Education candidates Pamela Suckla (R) 531, and Christine Pacheco-Koveleski (D) 171; and Colorado Senate candidate for District 7 Ron Teck (R) 114.
