Hoppy Haden more than doubled opponent Kenneth Schawe to win the Republican battle for Caldwell County Judge after unofficial results were tallied from Tuesday night’s Primary Election.

Haden, who has been the County Judge since 2019, received 68.94 percent of the vote. Schawe was the County Judge from 2015-18.

Haden will now face Democrat challenger Anna Prusaitis Ybarra, who ran unopposed in her Primary, in the Nov. 8 General Election.

Caldwell County Commissioner Precinct 2, Barbara Shelton, lost her bid for reelection by almost 3-1 as challenger Rusty Horne received 74.11 percent of the vote in the Republican Primary. There was no Democrat in that race.

Dyral Thomas won the Democrat Primary for Caldwell County Commissioner Precinct 4 with a 62.42 percent to 37.58 percent margin over Frank Sughrue. Thomas will face Republican Jerry West in the General Election following West’s victory over Rob Ortiz III, 64.75 percent to 35.25 percent.

Justice of the Peace Precinct 1 Incumbent Matt Kiely also won handily, defeating challenger Suzy Falgout with 61.52 percent of the votes.

Michael Lumley knocked off Charity Kittrell 243-174 to win the Republican Primary for Justice of the Peace Precinct 4 in Caldwell County. He will face Democrat challenger Yvette Mireles in the General Election.

Several candidates ran unopposed in their Primaries (see results below).

According to the Caldwell County web site, there were 2,500 early voters. However, only 4,698 voted in all, 19.08 percent of the county’s 24,628 registered voters.
