Holub defeats Hayen in GOP primary for county commission

ORIGINALLY WRITTEN
Dan Holub, Jim Barnett and Sam Brownback won the only contested races in Tuesday’s Republican primary election.

Holub defeated Max Hayen, 382-292 to become the Republican candidate in what will be an uncon- tested election as the District 2 representative on the Marion County Board of Commissioners.

Incumbent State Sen. Jim Barnett lost, 607-549, in Marion County to challenger James Meier in the GOP race for District 17.

Barnett prevailed district-wide, however, with 70 percent of the vote and will face Sharon Karr, who ran unopposed in the Democratic primary.

Brownback easily defeated Arch Naramore, his GOP challenger for reelection to the U.S. Senate, by a vote of 1,246-135 in Marion County. He won statewide by an 87 percent to 13 percent margin.

In the general election, Brownback will face Robert Conroy, who edged Lee Jones in Marion County, 114-104, and went on to win the statewide vote, 56 percent to 44 percent in the Democratic primary.

Following are the election results for Marion County. An asterisk (*) indicates the candidate who will move on to the November general election.
