After tonight's tally of votes in the 2022 primary, two races on the Republican side in Rockwall County seem to be headed to runoff elections before the general election in November.

In the Republican primary for county judge, incumbent David Sweet finished just shy of 50 percent (48.72 percent). Therefore, he and runner-up Frank New, who received 26.26 percent of the vote will, continue to vie for their party's nomination in the May 24 runoff election. The winner will face Democrat Brandon Vines.

The other runoff election in the county will involve the race for County Commissioner Precinct 4, in which Janet Nichol won 40.8 percent of the vote and runner-up John Stacy captured 30.11 percent. The winner will face Erika Ledferd.

While the Republican nominees for county judge and county commissioner Precinct 4 have still yet to be determined, the winners of the nominations for other county races are: Dana Cullins Macalik for County Commissioner-Precinct 2 (who won with 61.03 percent of the vote) and Tony Norton for Justice of the Peace Precinct 1 (who won by 64.91 percent).

In the House District 33 race, Democrats Peter Haase and Graeson Lynskey were locked in a tight race with 29-43 precincts reporting at 11:30 p.m. Lynskey held a 51.15% to 48.85% lead.

On the Republican side, incumbent Rep. Justin Holland (69.46%) held a commanding lead over Dennis London (25.74) and Scott Lamarca (4.8%).
