ORANGE —

Other contested races in the Orange County Republican Primary included the race for Orange County District Clerk between incumbent Vickie Edgerly and challenger Kay Abbott. Edgerly secured the nomination by a vote of 5,031 to 2,904.
Also, the Orange County Republican Chairperson position was up for grabs between candidates Jerry Wilson and Sheila Faske, as current Chairperson Zach Johnson announced he would not seek re-election. It was Faske earning the nomination by a count of 4,473 to 2,811.
Several candidates were unopposed during the Orange County Republican Primary and will run unopposed in November as well. This includes Buddie Hahn for Orange County 260th District Court, Mandy White-Rogers for Orange County Court at Law, Jody Crump for Orange County Commissioner of Precinct 4, Derry Dunn for Justice of the Peace in Precinct 2, and Rodney Price for Justice of the Peace in Precinct 4.
The Orange County Democratic Party did not have any contested races. Karen Jo Vance ran unopposed for Orange County Clerk and Christy Khoury was unopposed for Orange County Treasurer. Both women are unopposed by a Republican candidate for the November general election.
Although David Peck, incumbent Justice of the Peace in Precinct 1, ran unopposed in the Republican Primary election, he will face challenger Gail Shaw Barnett, the Democratic nominee who ran unopposed in the Democratic Primary, this November.
