|Knoll, Gremillion in judge run-off; local races decided|
A run-off for Third Circuit Court of Appeal Judge was one result of Saturday's primary election, while other districtwide races as well as Constable and Justice of the Peace elections locally were decided.
The turnout in Concordia Parish election was 46 percent, according to Clerk of Court Clyde Ray Webber.
In the race for Third Circuit Court of Appeal Judge, 1st District, Division C, Shannon Gremillion and Triston Knoll are in a run-off.
Knoll led districtwide with 22,835 votes (36.84 percent).
Only 244 votes separated Gremillion and Loren M. Lampert for the second place finish. Gremillion tallied 19,700 votes (31.78 percent), while Lampert received 19,456 votes (31.39 percent).
"I really feel good," Knoll said. "I got nearly 37 percent of the vote and I'm just so proud and pleased for my supporters who are tirelessly working for me. We want to continue to do what we are doing and to secure additional votes on Nov. 4."
"I think our message is good," Knoll said. "I think those people who were unable to support us for one reason or another will listen to the message we will bring them and be pleased with it."
Gremillion said he was pleased with his support, too.
"The thing I most want to point out is how honored and humbled I was to see the vote of confidence from the people who know me best," Gremillion said. "I handily carried Concordia Parish and I am honored by that."
"It's going to be a hard fight," he said. "We've got a young man in Marksville who is outspending us 2-to-1, but no matter how much he spends he is not going to be able to demonstrate he's more experienced or more ready for the job than I am. I am very proud by far to be the most experienced and most capable to do this job."
Knoll's commanding lead in Avoyelles Parish seemed to have made the difference in his race. He tallied 7,114 votes there to 2,235 for Gremillion and 1,506 for Lampert.
Knoll also led in Natchitoches Parish.
Lampert carried Grant, LaSalle, Rapides and Sabine parishes, while Gremillion won big in Concordia and Catahoula parishes.
In Concordia, Gremillion received 3,133 votes (58.67 percent) to 1,216 (22.77 percent) for Knoll and 991 (18.56 percent) for Lampert.
In Catahoula, Gremillion garnered 1,718 votes (50.51 percent) to 918 (26.99 percent) for Knoll and 765 (22.49 percent) for Lampert.
Gremillion carried all but one percent in Concordia and all but three in Catahoula.
Gremillion's father, Glenn Gremillion, previously held this Third Circuit slot prior to his retirement.
Fifth District Congressman: Rodney Alexander, who won handily districtwide, carried the Republican Primary over Andrew Clack, by a vote of 1,226 (90.75 percent) to 125 (9.25 percent) in Concordia.
