White leads Carwile in 57th District General Assembly race

In the 57th District General Assembly race, incumbent Republican Al White led Democratic challenger Terry Carwile 62-36 percent at press time.

American Constitution Party candidate Zane Newitt, and Libertarian Party candidate Michael Plylar, each had 1 percent, of the total vote, which stood at 6,490.

The 57th District covers the west end of Garfield County, starting between Silt and Rifle, plus Moffat, Rio Blanco, Routt, Jackson and Grand counties.

In Garfield County, White had 61 percent of the vote, followed by Carwile with 34 percent, Newitt with 3 percent and Plylar with 2 percent.

White, a retired business owner from Winter Park, is shooting for a third term in the General Assembly. He ran on his record, which includes the passage of his so called “No Call” bill that limits calls the telemarketing industry can place.

Carwile is a union member and heavy equipment operator at a coal mine near his home town of Craig. This was Carwile’s first run at elected office.
