Stone County Sheriff Lance Bonds won the Democratic nomination for that office over two challengers, and Angie Hudspeth-Wade won the nomination for Stone County and Circuit Clerk in last Tuesday’s preferential primary election. The two will not have opponents in the November general election, so will take office in January.
Bonds garnered 1,562 votes to Gary Branscum’s 312 and Bill Ditto’s 212.
Wade tallied 1,351 votes to Kelli Trammell’s 719.
