A number of candidates won their races outright in Tuesday’s primary, most of whom were unopposed in judicial races.
They include District Court incumbents Ken Cory, Valorie Vega, Douglas Herndon, Kathy Hardcastle, Jackie Glass, Jennifer Togliatti, Betsy Gonzalez, Mark Ralph Denton, Tim Williams, Allan Earl, David Wall, Valerie Adair and James Bixler. David Barker, first appointed to District Court, was elected outright Tuesday. So was District Court candidate Abbi Silver, a justice of the peace.
Incumbents Art Ritchie and William Potter won their respective Family Court races. Eric Goodman and Melissa Saragosa, the latter appointed in 2006, won their races unopposed for justice of the peace in Las Vegas. Incumbent Stephen George won his Henderson justice of the peace race.
Incumbent Jack Schofield won his Board of Regents race in District 5.
These candidates needed one vote to be elected outright.
Even though incumbent Thalia Dondero was running unopposed for Board of Regents in District 3, she will be ineligible to serve because of the recent Supreme Court ruling on term limits. She will finish out her term in January and the governor will then make an appointment to her seat. That person will serve for two years until the seat is open for election.
In Northern Nevada, Regent Howard Rosenberg was on the ballot though he, like Dondero, was ruled ineligible due to term limits. He finished second in his three-person race with 33 percent of the vote. William Cobb took the District 10 seat with 60 percent of the vote.ON THE WEB
