When the final votes in the 2020 Primary Election were counted this evening, no one candidate had more than 50 percent of the votes in the race for the Republican Party nominee for Stephens County Commissioner in Precinct 1. There will be a runoff election between David Fambro and Chad Ezell.

There were 538 votes cast in the precinct, including early voting and election day voting. Fambro received 162 votes or 30.11 percent, and Ezell had 105 votes or 19.52 percent. Since no one had more than 50 percent of the votes in the primary, then the top two candidates will face off again in May.

The other candidates in the race included:

  • Malcolm Bufkin Sr. — 99 votes
  • Jimmie Cantrell — 98 votes
  • M.J. McIntire — 42 votes
  • Rickey Edwards — 19
  • Will Harper — 13 votes

The Precinct 1 County Commissioner race on the Republican ballot was the only contested local race in the Primary.

Although all of the local votes had been counted by shortly after 8:30 p.m. tonight, Tuesday, March 3, the votes by precinct were not immediately available. The Breckenridge Texan will have a more complete story as soon as the information is available.
