Sheriff Bob Mosier easily turned back a challenger in Tuesday’s Republican primary, while political newcomer Eric Maybach won the GOP nomination for commissioner of revenue.

Mr. Mosier received 80.5 percent of the votes to defeat Chris Cochrane.

Mr. Maybach got 69.4 percent of the votes to defeat Carl Wiberg.

Mr. Maybach will face Angela Smith in the Nov. 5 general election to succeed veteran Commissioner of Revenue Ross D’Urso, who will retire at year’s end.

In his bid for a second, four-year term Mr. Mosier will face no opponent on the November ballot.

In the Democratic primary for the 18th District Virginia House of Delegates nomination, Laura Galante carried Fauquier with 984 votes to 403 for Tristan Shields. District-wide, Ms. Galante got 70 percent of the vote and defeated Mr. Shields 1,706 to 728. Ms. Galante, of Marshall, will face Del. Michael Webert (R-Marshall) in the November general election.

In the 88th District Democratic primary, Fauquier’s three precincts went for Jess Foster of Remington, with 163 votes, to 35 for Kecia Evans of Stafford. District-wide, Ms. Foster got 74 percent of the vote and defeated Ms. Evans, 2,003 to 699. Ms. Foster will face Del. Mark Cole (R-Spotsylvania) in November.

Tuesday’s primary elections drew 5,070 Fauquier voters, representing a turnout of about 10 percent.

The unofficial Fauquier results:

Mosier 4,083 votes
Cochrane 987 votes

Maybach 3,409 votes

Local Democrats failed to put forward candidates for all the Supervisor races and all the Constitutional offices. Whaaaat? You can't win if you don't compete. What has the local Democratic Committee and it's leadership been doing over the last year?

Please correct your article. More than 5070 voted. There were two primaries and more than 10% voted.

Immediate correction: There was no Democratic primary in the 31st. Laura Galante won the primary in the 18th.
