Bonner County incumbents face challengers

Print Article

SANDPOINT — Incumbent elected office holders in Bonner County will have their hands full during the 2012 election cycle.

Three-way races are breaking out for the Republican nomination for sheriff and District 3 commissioner. There is also a contested primary race for the District 1 seat on the board.

Incumbent Republican Sheriff Daryl Wheeler will face Ponderay Police Officer Tim Fry and white separatist and business owner Shaun Patrick Winkler. The victor in the primary will face Rocky Jordan, an independent who ran for sheriff as a Republican in 2008, in the November general election.

The contest for the GOP nod for the District 3 seat on the county commission features incumbent Lewie Rich, former sheriff’s marine patrol supervisor Cary Kelly and Sage Dixon, a member of the county’s Property Rights Council.

The race for the District 3 spot on the commission could be decided at the May 15 primary because there are currently no general election challengers.

Incumbent Republican Prosecutor Louis Marshall stands to be the only primary election shoo-in. However, he’ll contend with two independents in the general — former Prosecutor Tevis Hull and Sandpoint attorney Michael Waldrup.

 In the contest for the county commission’s District 1 GOP nod, incumbent Cornel Rasor is going head-to-head with former state Sen. Joyce Broadsword. The winner of that contest will face Steve Johnson, an independent who has previously run for state office as a Democrat.

No Democratic candidates county office have filed declarations to have their names appear on the ballot. The deadline to file declarations was Friday.

Write-in candidates have until April 17 to declare their candidacy in the primary.
