Election Returns Lincoln County – 99% counted – 50.7% of eligible voters cast their ballot
At 99% of the vote tabulated, attorney Lanee Danforth appears to have won the election for Lincoln County District Attorney. She’s leading Jonathan Cable by a hefty margin – she has just shy of 60% of the vote.
In the race for Lincoln County Commission, incumbent Clare Hall pulled 5,965 votes so far compared to Joe Hitselberger’s 3,080, 40% Hall, 20% Hitselberger. Hall failed to get 50% +1 of the vote so she’ll be running against Hitselberger in the Fall.
In the Circuit Court, 17th District judicial race, Sheryl Bachart won by a large margin over Russell Baldwin – Bachart 10,694 to Baldwin 4,246.
Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden walked away with all the delegate votes with 70.3% of the democratic vote – Bernie Sanders amassing 18.7% of the democratic vote and no delegates.
In the 10th District State Representative race it was Democrat incumbent David Gomberg winning the top slot in the Democratic column, and his Republican challenger Max Sherman won in the Republican column. Gomberg pulled 2/3 of the vote between the parties in a dry run for the General Election in November. We’ll see what happens in November, but to the untrained eye it appears that Gomberg might have a bit of an advantage.
In the 10th District State Senate race Republican Lincoln City Mayor Dick Anderson trailed by a wide margin to Democrat Melissa Cribbins of Coos Bay who won her partisan contest with nearly 2/3rds of the vote. We’ll see how things turn out when Anderson and Cribbins face off in November. In Anderson’s republican nomination race he pulled just over twelve-thousand votes compared to his democratic nomination rival Melissa Cribbin who pulled 15,023. Looks like Anderson has some catching up to do with his democratic rival.
