Dana Murphy continues to lead Rob Johnson in the Republican primary being held today for one of November’s Corporation Commission races.
With about two-thirds of 2,234 precincts reporting, Murphy had 53,188 votes, while Johnson had 51,152.
The winner of the race will face Commissioner Jim Roth in a special election for his seat. The winner of the November race will serve out the remainder of former Commissioner Denise Bode’s term — a period of two years.
