An overwhelming vote appears to have knocked out Ouray County Sheriff Lance FitzGerald in the recall (which took place on the primary day). The prelimary vote is 2527-196 (93% against.
Fitzgerald's recall was started by the County Republicans party and joined by the Democrats, after he was accused of a DUI. His girlfriend was accused of domestic violence last year and was in jail for five days. He won office by 11 votes as an unaffiliated candidate, though he beat a Republican. Unaffiliated candidate Justin Perry (a former city administrator and police chief) appears to be leading the replacement race, topping Undersheriff Ted Wolfe (R) 1676-943.
