Incumbents leading, except in two contests, in early returns

Early returns, with 12 of 28 polling places reporting, for the most part show the incumbents leading the primary contests, with a couple of exceptions.

The exceptions are in races involving state legislators seeking BPU offices.

With only partial results reported, in the BPU, at large position 3 contest, State Sen. David Haley is in the lead, followed by Rose Mulvany Henry. In third place is incumbent Norman Scott.

In the BPU, District 3 contest, Rep. Stan Frownfelter is in the lead, with incumbent Jeff Bryant in second place.

Both state legislators have high name recognition after several years of being elected to state offices.

Incumbent UG Commissioners Melissa Bynum, Ann Murguia and Harold Johnson are fending off competition in early returns.
