38% – Phil Moffett
14% – Bobbie Holsclaw
Agriculture Commissioner –
Richie Robert Farmer (thanks for the correction) has defeated four Democratic rivals to take the nomination. He will face James Comer who has also won the Republican nomination tonight.
Secretary of State – Maybe the surprise of the night is that incumbent Democrat Elaine Walker appears to have been defeated by Democratic challenger Allison Grimes, who took 55% of the vote. The Republican race is still too close to call with Bill Johnson leading Hilda Legg by only 1,000 votes with almost all precincts reporting.
In the Treasurer and Auditor races, incumbent Treasurer Todd Hollenbach has beaten back a primary challenge easily, while Republicans have nominated in the latter race John Kemper.
