BEND, OR -- The race for Deschutes County Commissioner Position One was called pretty early in the night, Tuesday. In the Republican Primary, incumbent Tony DeBone took a commanding lead in the ballot count, from the start. Local Restaurateur and former private Investigator Ed Barbeau only received about 28% of the vote.


At the first counting, DeBone was cautiously optimistic. He told KBND News, "I'm honored to have the majority of the votes in this first set of numbers and it looks like it may go my way this evening, but we're waiting for the final results." He says he's honored to serve the county, "We provide a cost-effective level of government. Everybody who provides these services are just such great servants to the community, and I'm honored to be part of the leadership group."


DeBone's Democratic challenger is Amy Lowes, a healthcare provider and small business owner who ran unopposed in her primary.
