With all but two precincts reporting, County Clerk Geraldine Gutierrez has staved off a challenge from opponent David Romero to win the Democratic nomination for the county clerk post. Gutierrez took 70.4 percent of the vote compared to 29.6 percent for Romero.
The only precincts not included in the totals are the ones in Conchas and Trujillo. Results are unofficial until canvassing takes place. With no Republican challenger, Gutierrez is all but guaranteed a win in the November General election.
The three Democratic races for County Commission weren't as close.
