Justin Everett, the only RLCCO-endorsed candidate in the June 26th state primary election, lost narrowly to Brian Watson in the State Treasurer’s race. “It was an extremely tight race, where Watson won by less than 5,000 votes. Justin ran a positive campaign for Treasurer. His conservative bona fides were unmatched and we’re obviously disappointed in the outcome,” said Sue Moore, Chairman of RLCCO. Watson will face Democrat Dave Young in the general election in November.
In other state races, Walker Stapleton won handily in the governor’s primary, while Wayne Williams and George Brauchler ran unopposed for Secretary of State and State Attorney General respectively. Full results here.
