CLINTON — Shawn Hamerlinck and current Camanche School Board member Dan Srp have emerged as the Republican candidates for the Clinton County Board of Supervisor's general election in November.
With five candidates vying to be the Republican nominees, it was unclear if official candidates would be selected during today's primary.
To be included on the ballot as a Republican, nominees had to receive at least 35 percent of the vote. If only one or no one received that threshold, the party would've had to hold a convention in the future to determine which two candidates will represent the GOP in November.
With two open spots and 3,513 Republican votes cast, candidates needed a minimum of 614 votes to get their name on the general election ballot. Srp received 1,038 votes, while Hamerlinck received 813.
Kurt Olson received 507 votes, while Lester Shields received 495, and Lydia Whitman received 650.
Srp raised the most money during the campaign cycle with $6,335 in cash donations. He also spent the most money at $4,724.85, with campaign signs totaling $2,624.68. Shawn Hamerlinck raised $1,659 in cash contributions and spent $911.
