Sheriff Gore has 57.2% of the vote vs. Dave Myers, a Democratic Challenger from within Gore's own department, who has 42.6%. 

"I'm honored with what looks like the community's support and trust with their vote. I'm going to wait until all the votes are counted, but it’s looking very hopeful." Stephans, a Republican, said at 9:24 p.m.
