ELN: Republicans lead in 2 GarCo commission races

Two Republican candidates were leading late Tuesday night with most of the ballots counted in the Garfield County commissioner race.

Mike Samson was ahead of Steve Carter 10,281 to 9,807 in a race for an open seat, and incumbent John Martin led Stephen Bershenyi 10,174 to 10,005, with all but late mail-in ballots to be counted.

Carter and Bershenyi had led after a count of early and most mail-in votes, only to have their lead slip away.

Carter said he thinks at least part of the reason was a late “smear” campaign by outside groups at the end.
