Miller, Christy Winning Pima County Board Races

Posted By on Tue, Aug 30, 2016 at 9:09 PM

Pima County Supervisor Ally Miller has a 2,000-vote lead on challenger John Winchester in her race for reelection tonight. (Miller 10,780; Winchester 8,567) Miller has often been unhinged in her first term, but as a symbol of opposition to Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry and the other board members, Miller has won over a majority of Republican primary voters tonight. She will face Democrat Brian Bickel in the GOP-leaning District 1 in the November general.

In the race to replace Pima County Supervisor Ray Carroll, former car dealer and State Transportation Board member Steve Christy has jumped to a big lead over his outsider challengers, Marla Closen and John Backer. (Christy 10,568/Closen 6,834/Backer 1,597). Christy faces minor opposition by Green Party candidate Josh Reilly in November.
