County commissioner challengers, Republicans Ed Ulibarri and Jim Haugsness, got enough support at the Montrose County Assembly last week to get their names on the ballot, according to the county's Republican party.
Candidates need 30 percent of the votes from delegates to qualify for the election, and those who get 10 to 30 percent of the votes can petition back onto the ballot.
In the Montrose County District 1 commissioner race, incumbent Ron Henderson got 123 votes, or 63.1 percent, and will be placed first on June's primary ballot. Challenger Ed Ulibarri got 71, or 36.6 percent, of the votes.
In the District 3 race, incumbent David White got 132 votes, or 68.4 percent, and will be listed first on the ballot. His challenger, Jim Haugsness, got 60 votes for 30.93 percent of the total.
The county assembly was held March 17 at Centennial Middle School in Montrose.
On March 31, the Republican House District 58 Assembly will begin at 9 a.m. at the Norwood Community Center. The Republican Judicial District 7 Assembly will take place at 2 p.m. that same day at the City of Montrose Centennial Meeting Room off of Centennial Plaza.
And then on April 13, the Republican Congressional District 3 Assembly will take place at the Colorado Convention Center, while the next day, the Colorado State Convention will be held at the Denver University Ritchie Center.
