Three men emerged out of sparsely attended primaries on Tuesday, to earn their party's nomination to run in the November elections.

House of Delegates

The WSLS viewing area had two House of Delegates primary races to choose Republican nominees for retiring delegates: The 6th and 16th Districts.

In the 6th District, which covers Carroll County and Wythe County, Jeffrey Campbell defeated Jack Weaver to succeed Anne B. Crockett-Stark, winning more than 70% of the primary vote.  Fewer than 1,000 people total voted in the primary.

In the 16th District, which covers Martinsville, along with parts of Henry County and Pittsylvania County, Les Adams defeated Kenneth Bowman to succeed Don Merricks, winning more than 80% of the vote.  More than 3,000 votes were cast in the primary.

Roanoke City Sheriff

In Roanoke, Democrats chose a candidate for sheriff along with the statewide races for Attorney General and Lieutenant Governor.

Tim Allen defeated Joe Bush with more than 86% of the vote.

Allen moves on to a 3-way race in November, against Incumbent Republican Sheriff Octavia Johnson, and Independent challenger Travis Akins.
