“The people have spoken, and it is obvious that our voices will go to Washington D.C. in the November election," Bell said. “I’m really honored to have the support ... especially in each of the counties. We’ll continue to work hard to bring the voices of the people to Washington D.C.”

Weber and Bell will face off in the general election in November. All results are unofficial until canvassed.
