Though, clearly, most attention locally was trained on the presidential primary results in Tuesday’s voting, there was one more matter to be decided, the De
mocratic primary for General Sessions Court Clerk.
That contest went fairly easily to the incumbent, Ed Stanton Jr., with 53,797 votes to 18,896 for William Stovall.
The Republican primary winner, who was uncontested, was Richard Morton, with 36,756 votes.
Stanton and Morton will vie for the position in the August 4 Shelby County general election.
