Stecker Tops McGregor in Tuesday’s Primary

–In a rematch of the 2018 General Election, Fourth District Supervisor Kyle Stecker defeated former Supervisor’s Chairman Don McGregor during Tuesday’s Primary Election in Kossuth County. 

Stecker finished with 297 votes to win the Republican nomination in the District 4 race, some 60 ahead of McGregor who ended up with 237. During his previous tenure on the board, McGregor had served as a Democrat, but this time he sought the Republican nomination. There were 13 write-in votes in the Democratic Primary for the District 4 seat, so it is possible Stecker will face a challenger in the General Election this fall. 

There are 2 other seats on the Board of Supervisors that will be up for election this fall. 

In District 1, Incumbent Galen Casey will face off with Carter Nath, as both were unopposed in Tuesday’s primary. 

In District 3, Incumbent Donnie Loss was unopposed in his party’s primary, and is currently unopposed in the General Election. 

County Attorney Todd Holmes, County Recorder Karen Benschoter and County Treasurer Nich Rahm all were unopposed in the primary on Tuesday, and are currently unopposed in the General Election as well.
