Update: Maps of final 2018 primary election results in key San Diego County races

by Jill Castellanoinewsource | July 10, 2018

inewsource has mapped the final primary election results in six of San Diego County’s biggest 2018 races: the 49th and 50th congressional districts, district attorney, sheriff, and the 4th and 5th Board of Supervisors districts.

Seven candidates won precincts in the 49th Congressional District, considered one of the most contested House seats in the country. Republican Diane Harkey of Dana Point finished first in the Orange County and San Diego County portions of the district. Democrat Mike Levin of San Juan Capistrano finished second, even though Democrat Sara Jacobs of Del Mar won more votes than Levin did in San Diego County.

Despite facing an FBI investigation into his past campaign spending, Republican incumbent Duncan Hunter of Alpine dominated the primary for the 50th Congressional District, winning 315 of San Diego County’s precincts. Second-place finisher, Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar of Jamul won 17 precincts. (Hunter also won the southwestern Riverside County portion of the district, but detailed breakdowns aren’t available.)

In the district attorney’s race, interim District Attorney Summer Stephan beat Deputy Public Defender Geneviéve Jones-Wright with almost 64 percent of the vote. Sheriff Bill Gore won re-election over sheriff’s Cmdr. Dave Myers by capturing 56 percent of the vote. 

While those two races were settled Tuesday, the top two vote-getters in the congressional and county supervisor contests will face off in November.
