Cole Defeats Bunn in Republican Primary for State Rep

Leah Cole defeated fellow Republican Greg Bunn for the party's nomination by a narrow 52-vote margin.

The first-time Republican candidates clashed at the polls and Leah Cole walked away the winner Tuesday night, defeating Greg Bunn by a mere 52 votes.

Cole, now with the party nomination in hand, moves on to a final special election April 2 against Democrat Beverley Griffin Dunne and Dave Gravel, who is running as unenrolled.

Turnout overall for the primary election Tuesday was about 6 percent, according to the City Clerk's office.

Dunne was also on the ballot Tuesday, unopposed, and actually earned more votes than either Cole or Bunn.
