Prim beats Zinke by 405 votes!

It took up most of the evening, but the results are in for the Sheriff’s race. Bill Prim, newcomer to politics, appears to have beaten Andy Zinke.

First results came in about 8:28PM, and the pace moved along nicely. Then reporting slowed, once 209 of the 212 precincts had reported. Why it took so long to report the final three precincts and hit the 100% mark, who knows?

Zinke's loss in the Primary means he is totally out of the running. Illinois election laws will keep him off the November ballot in the General Election.

Congratulations to Bill Prim. Let’s hope late absentee ballots and provisional ballots don’t change the result. Tomorrow will be a gloomy day at 2200 N. Seminary Ave.

Deputies, hit the road early and stay out of sight.
