Carteret Sheriff Wins Primary

Republican Carteret County Sheriff Asa Buck won his re-election bid.

Buck beat challenger Paul Ehrler 86 percent to 14 percent.

The sheriff's office's past has been at the center of controversy, because former Sheriff Ralph Thomas and former deputy Chris Cozart pleaded guilty to federal charges this week.

Sheriff Asa Buck was not in any way connected to that case.

Instead, Buck's battle this week has been against his challenger, which he easily defeated.
