Looks like Republican Mark Napier, a former Tucson Police officer who now works as an UA parking administrator, will be facing off against Democrat Chris Nanos in the race for sheriff in November. Napier has a big lead over Terry Staton in the GOP primary.

Pima County Assessor Bill Staples is cruising to reelection against former employee Brian Johnson.

Dustin Williams has a big lead over Mike Gordy in the race for Pima County Superintend of Schools in the Democratic primary. He'll face Republican Margaret Burkholder, a school teacher who recently made an unsuccessful run for Tucson City Council last year, in November. Gordy fesses up to TW correspondent Nick Meyers: "I'm a little disappointed in the results, but I don't think I ran as good a campaign as I could have."

Former state lawmaker Paula Aboud has a big lead over attorney Jeff Rogers in the race for Justice of the Peace. Rogers had the legal experience and had kept as high a profile as any Pima County Party chair, but Aboud had the name ID that came with serving in the state Legislature.

Former state lawmaker Charlene Pesquiera is way out ahead in the three-way race for Justice of the Peace, Precinct 4.
