HUTCHINSON, Kan. — According to a text message from State Rep. Paul Waggoner to Hutch Post Monday, Randy Parks appears to have won the Reno County District 1 Republican primary. 

Parks ended up with a two-vote lead over Cris Corey after the counting of provisional ballots Monday.

Corey has until 5 p.m. Tuesday to ask for a recount, if he so chooses.

The winner of the primary is the likely replacement for retiring commissioner Ron Sellers, as there is no Democrat in the race, though there can be a write-in campaign waged in the general election.
