Taylor Ousts Herman in JP Election

Amarillo College police officer Robert Taylor is moving on to the November general election in Potter County's race for Justice of the Peace.

In precinct two, Republican voters advanced Taylor to the November general election, giving him the Republican nomination over incumbent Judge Richard Herman. According to unofficial results, Taylor won 387 votes, or 62 percent, to Herman's 239 votes, or 38 percent.

Tuesday marked the first electoral loss for Herman, who has served as Justice of the Peace since 2014. Herman won the Republican Party's nomination for the seat in 2014, and defeated incumbent Nancy Bosquez in the November 2014 general election.

Taylor's victory means that he will face Democrat Claudia Griego, a bail bond agent, in the November general election.
