YC Republicans will have primary elections

Yuma County will have two elected positions determined in June’s primary election.
Two candidates emerged for both Commissioner, District 1, and Sheriff, during the Yuma County Republican County Assembly, held Sunday in Wray.
Adam Gates and Jamie Unger both received enough delegates to make the ballot for commissioner. Incumbent Trent Bushner is not seeking another term.

Incumbent Sheriff Todd Combs and Curtis Witte, currently a member of the Yuma Police Department, both received enough delegates to get on the ballot.
Also advancing were Beverly Wenger for County Clerk, Chrystal Hammond for County Treasurer, Cindy Taylor for County Assessor, and Javan Jones for County Coroner.
Yuma County Democrats held their county assembly last week, but do not have any county-level candidates. A write-in candidate for the primary has until April 22 to file an affidavit of intent with the Yuma County Clerk and Recorder.
As of now the winners in the June 28 primary will be unopposed in the November general election.
However, an unaffiliated voter may petition on to the general election ballot by turning in the petition by July 14 to the Yuma County Clerk and Recorder.
The Yuma County Republicans elected 17 delegates and a number of alternates to the Republican State Assembly in Colorado Springs on April 9, 10 delegates to the Congressional Assembly on April 8, five delegates to the Senate District 1 Assembly, and six delegates to the House District 63 Assembly, both on April 2 in Sterling.
More than 100 attended the county assembly, and even more attended the Lincoln Day Dinner that followed. A total of 10 candidates spoke to the crowd, including candidates for state House District 63, state Senate District 1, Secretary of State, U.S. Senate and Governor.
