Democrats sweep Dallas County races

Democrats swept Dallas County races and secured a super majority on the Commissioners Court during Tuesday’s election.

Despite an FBI investigation, Democratic Commissioner John Wiley Price handily beat Republican challenger Charles “Lingy” Lingerfelt. County Commissioner District 1 candidate Theresa Daniel, also a Democrat, defeated Republican opponent Larry Miller for the seat being vacated by Republican Commissioner Maurine Dickey.

Victories for Daniel and Price give Democrats a 4-1 majority on the court.

Democratic Sheriff Lupe Valdez won a third term, defeating Republican challenger Kirk Launius. Democratic county Tax Assessor-Collector John R. Ames defeated Republican challenger Andrew Marcontell. Democrats also led three contested county judgeships.
