CLINTON — Clinton County Attorney Mike Wolf captured his third term Tuesday, defeating challenger Bruce Ingham with 54 percent of the vote.

Unofficial totals gave Wolf 7,510 votes to Ingham’s 6,343.

Wolf said he is thankful for the time and support people put into his campaign.

“I’m very humbled and very thankful for the support and the work,” he said. “I’m also thankful that the office is a non-partisan office. I think people across all of the parties realize the office is to serve their justice needs and I will continue to do that.”

Wolf, a Republican, first was elected in 1998, when he defeated then County Attorney Larry Schultz. Wolf was re-elected in 2002. Ingham, a Democrat, had worked in Schultz’s office as an assistant prosecutor, and now is a trial lawyer. He recently completed a term on the Clinton School Board and did not seek re-election to that post.

Ingham was not available for comment today.
