J. Scott Christianson gives a victory speech to a crowd of supporters at the end of his primary election result watch party on Tuesday at Mojo's. Christianson led the polls throughout the night and won the Democratic nomination for Boone County Presiding Commissioner with 70.52% of the vote.

What happened: J. Scott Christianson overwhelmingly defeated John Sam Williamson Tuesday,  70.52 percent to 29.48 percent.

Reaction: "I want to thank everyone in Boone County who supported me. The real work begins tomorrow. The general election for presiding commissioner will determine a lot about the future of Boone County. This isn't a time for worn out ideological schemes like what Ed Robb has been promoting for 20 years. It's time for a presiding commissioner who's prepared to do the work, will engage constituents on concerns and will focus on the technological and economical opportunities that will be critical for Boone County in the future." -Christianson at his Mojo's watch party
