Colorado: Ouray County Sheriff kicked out in overwhelming recall vote

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.
