Democrat Gator DeLoach was officially declared the winner of the Putnam County sheriff’s race but a spokesman for his opponent Republican Jon Kinney said the results will be challenged.
Certified results were posted on the supervisor of elections website Friday night after several overseas mail-in ballots were received and showed DeLoach won the three-way race by 16 votes.
After 427 extra ballots that were cast and counted but not added to the results election night were added and two recounts, DeLoach was named the unofficial winner last Friday.
Kinney resigned from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office last year to run for sheriff and DeLoach is a captain with the Sheriff’s Office overseeing administrative services.
