10th District Representative Position 1 Primary Results.
A wide field of Democrats challenged Republican Candidate Greg Gilday to replace much respected Rep. Norma Smith in Position 1. Under our Primary “top 2” system the two candidates that will be on the November ballot will be Republican Candidate Greg Gilday and Democrat Candidate Angie Homola.
A wide Range of Democrats split the vote and so far in the count Greg Gilday has over 46% of the vote compared to Angie Homola; who has almost 27% of the vote. With only about 8000 votes left to count its very likely that these two will be the candidates on the ballot in the fall.
