Incumbent Emma Pugh Brown held off challenger Larry Torres, 56 votes to 41, to earn the Democratic nomination for Precinct 1 County Commissioner. She'll face Oscar M. Garcia in November. Garcia outvoted Edwin O. “Ed” Ware, 112 to 98, to win the Republican nomination.

In the only other locally contest race, incumbent Sheriff Stan Parker hammered challenger M.O. Horton, 1,801 votes to 366 in the Republican Primary.
