Breaking News: San Bernardino County Primary Election Results Final

By Nikki Garrett Metzger

(Victor Valley)- – The election night unofficial results are in with all precincts counted. The San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters reported that about 20% of registered voters cast their vote in this primary election, which was nearly the same as the presidential primary in 2008.

There wasn’t much change from the early results, but here is how the final tallies stacked up:

For the 8th Congressional District seat Paul Cook retained his early lead with 16.25% of the vote. He will face Gregg Imus, who received 14.87% of the votes, in the November election. Phil Liberatore was a close third with 14.37% of the votes.

In the race for the 1st District Supervisor seat Robert Lovingood remained the front runner with 20.99% of the vote, but Rick Roelle was a very close 2nd, only behind by 400 votes. They will square off in the November election.

James C. Ramos pulled ahead of Neil Derry in the race for the 3rd District Supervisor. Ramos captured 46.92% of the vote to Derry’s 32.84%.  However, they will still face off in the November election since neither one received more than 50% of the vote.

Assemblyman Steve Knight finished quite a bit ahead of challenger Star Moffat for the newly drawn 21st Senate seat. Knight received 68.91% of votes cast while Moffat got 31.09%. However, they will still face each other in November because of the new top-two law that mandates the top two vote-getters from the primary race must run against each other in the November election.

Tim Donnelly received 51.65% of the vote for the 33rd Assembly District, which encompasses most of San Bernardino County including the Victor Valley.  John Coffey was a distant second with 29.31% of the vote, and William “Bill” Jahn got 19.03% of votes cast.

The measure to alter the California term-limits law, Prop. 28 passed with a final tally of 56.92% YES to 43.08% NO.

Prop. 29, the tax on cigarettes for cancer research, failed.  The final vote total was 37.77% YES to 62.23% NO.
