Results for the highly debated Stone County Sheriff Democratic Primary Special Election are in with 29 of 29 boxes reporting. The results are:
- Todd Hudspeth (1555 votes)
- Lance Bonds (1950)
Last week, a judge ruled that a special election
to determine a Democratic nominee for Stone County Sheriff would go on as scheduled, despite a pending lawsuit over the election's legality.
The controversy started after a run-off in the Democratic election ended with a tie between Lance Bonds and incumbent Sheriff Todd Hudspeth. Governor Mike Beebe issued a proclamation setting a special election.
