TUCSON - In the race for Pima County Sheriff, Republican Mark Napier has taken a huge lead against his four challengers and will likely go on to face incumbent Sheriff Clarence Dupnik in November.
So far, Napier has received 18,948 votes, and 43 percent of the total vote, more than his next two opponents combined. The presumptive GOP nominee will go on to face longtime Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik in the General Election.
News 4 Tucson's Sean Mooney caught up with Napier at the GOP watch party Tuesday evening, where he said: "I think we need a more visible, more dynamic, more engaged sheriff here in Pima County."
Sheriff Dupnik has served as Pima County Sheriff since 1980.
